About Ahead Academy
As a social enterprise of Just Gettin' Started, we are a part of a mission to bring equity, access, and opportunities to young Black people in Chicago.
At Ahead Academy, young girls engage in interactive day camps and workshops, where they gain career skills, a professional network, and a set of tools to help them thrive in their chosen profession –all while learning what is required to run a successful hair business.
Our interactive day camps and workshops teach girls ages 8-15 entrepreneurship and empowerment through hair.
