Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Two local organizations have made it their mission to help people who have been disconnected from the workforce find new jobs and careers. Miss Julie's School of Beauty is a faith-based cosmetology school that will offer training to survivors of human trafficking. Imprintable Solutions offers internships to at-risk youth.

This hour, we hear from leaders and trainees at both organizations about how their work is changing lives. Our guests:

  • Julie Chapus, director and instructor at Miss Julie’s School of Beauty
  • 'Noelle," future trainee at Miss Julie’s School of Beauty
  • Tina Paradiso, president of Imprintable Solutions
  • Breanna, team member at Imprintable Solutions
