Raising Our Next Leaders 

The vision of the Operation Young Boss Academy is to inspire our youth to dream beyond the salon chair, while imparting within them the entrepreneurial spirit, knowledge of business, interpersonal skills, and confidence to become leaders within the Beauty Industry, our community, and world. By informing them of the opportunities and background information of the Art of Cosmetology with a focus in the Hair Braiding industry.


Our mission is to help combat poverty by providing our youth with skills to create self sufficiency by lowering the recidivism rate among our youth by giving them a hand up not a hand out.
