OUR MISSION: Recognizes the role of barbers as mentors and incorporates reading and education to foster positive attitudes towards learning and academic success.
Since 2016 the Barbershop Book Club (BSBC) Literacy Project has provided hundreds of free books and positive adult role modeling, mentoring, and reading engagements to low-income youth from ages 1 to 18.
Youth receive a free haircut and book from barbers participating in the Barbershop Book Club while they read an age-appropriate, culturally relevant book while getting a haircut.
