At Ahead Academy, we are committed to empowering young minds from all backgrounds and communities.

Embracing Cultural Identity in Camp:

Our Day Camps are dedicated to celebrating and honoring the rich cultural heritage of black and brown communities in Chicago. We believe that braiding is not only a skill but also a powerful means of cultural expression. Through our camps, girls will have the opportunity to learn traditional braiding techniques and styles that are deeply rooted in their cultural heritage. We aim to create an environment where girls feel proud of their roots and can showcase their unique identity through their braids.

Building Confidence and Self-Empowerment through Camps:

Braid Day Camps at Ahead Academy are not just about learning hairstyles; they are about nurturing confidence and self-empowerment. Our experienced instructors are not only skilled braiders but also passionate mentors who understand the importance of building up young girls. Through interactive workshops and inspiring sessions, campers will develop valuable life skills, discover their individual strengths, and learn how to embrace their true potential. We believe that when girls feel empowered, they can conquer any challenge that comes their way.

Safe and Inclusive Space:

We understand the importance of providing a safe and inclusive space for black and brown girls to express themselves freely. Our Braid Camps are designed to foster a supportive and welcoming environment where girls can connect with like-minded peers, build lasting friendships, and celebrate their unique beauty. We prioritize creating a space that values diversity, encourages collaboration, and promotes respect for one another.
