We’re proud to tell you that community involvement is one of the ways State College of Beauty Culture stands out from other cosmetology schools.
While our school provides a valuable service in the form of educating aspiring cosmetologists, estheticians and nail technologists, we serve our community as well as our students by giving back to Wausau. Our students share our commitment to getting—and staying— involved in the community, a commitment that typically continues long after our students graduate and launch their careers.
We’re honored to work with groups like the Boys and Girls Club and the Department of Vocational Rehab on a monthly basis. It’s our privilege to teach young people about hygiene and career prospects in our field.
We’re equally thrilled to coordinate with the Wausau School District’s Leadership Conference on an ongoing basis as well. Through this program, fifth graders are chosen by teachers to tour our campus and talk with our own students. The elementary schoolers are always impressed to learn how our students can evolve into leaders in their industry as well as their community.
Mosinee School District: Careers, Interest, Action (CIA Day). Junior Students spend the day with us learning about the Beauty Industry and getting a REAL experience of what college life at SCBC is all about.
DC Everest School District: In the Spring and Fall the 8th and 9th grade students come in to learn and get some hands on experience of the cosmetology education.
March is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and students attending State College of Beauty Culture are always eager to do their part to support such a worthy cause. As a member of the Professional Beauty Association, we host various fundraisers throughout March to raise awareness about the dangers of violence on the home front. Over the past 15 years, we’ve raised $1,000 or more per year during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which is donated to the Women’s Community, Inc.
“With the industry primarily comprised of women, this fundraiser is a great fit. Students are educated on how chemo and radiation affect hair, skin and nails. And we get to raise money for a great cause, to find a cure for breast cancer,” says Andi Burns, President of the State College of Beauty Culture.
Everyone affiliated with our college—students, instructors, administrative staff, management personnel, and clients—participates in our interactive fundraisers throughout every October. We raise money through candy bar sales, brat fry cookouts, and bake sales. We raise even more money by letting people pay to pop a balloon to receive a discount on our services. People can buy entries in a charitable 50/50 raffle as well.
And that’s not all! Our students can pay a “fee” to be out of dress code while they support the laudable cause of bringing an end to a pervasive disease that affects too many individuals and their families.
If you want to support your community while you prepare to pursue a rewarding career as a cosmetologist, esthetician and/or nail technologist we encourage you to enroll in our courses.
Even if your career path will take you in a different direction, we invite you to join us in our Wausau community involvement initiatives.
President Andi Burns said of the college’s focus on community involvement, “SCBC finds it very important to be involved in the community because it provides good exposure for students and we want to be a resource for our community. We want our students to continue to give back and to be involved once they graduate. And they DO!”
