Adult Cosmetology students will perform “confidence makeovers” for Huntington Family Center Participants
OCM BOCES is hosting the “confidence makeover” event in collaboration with ProLiteracy’s Literacy for Social Change (LSC) initiative. LSC is a unique program that enables facilitators within community literacy programs to combine literacy and cutting-edge strategies for human development and problem solving. The agency will be on hand at the event to conduct pre-and post- makeover surveys with participants to gauge how the event impacted them.
OCM BOCES Adult Education Cosmetology Program is donating all of the supplies, costs, equipment and times. During the event, OCM BOCES will also hold an open house in order to give makevover participants and the public the opportunity to tour all adult education classes and learn about its many vocational programs.
OCM BOCES Literacy and Adult Education Program Coordinator Mari Ukleya said, “I’m excited that our adult cosmetology students can be a part of this event. Even more though, the students are excited to be using their skills for such a great cause. We’re looking forward to seeing the physical and emotional transformations.”
