Fades For Grades

Fades For Grades

Fades for Grades (FFG) is a progressive, proactive, and passionate mentoring program for young, underserved males, giving them “a safe place to clear space,” in a barbershop style setting. Using our DISCIPLINE model, tools are given on how to manage and overcome trauma through real, raw, and relevant conversations and activities, with the goal of teaching them how to avoid the pitfalls of the inner-city.  FFG encourages young men to remain in school, set positive goals for the future, while rewarding them with haircuts for improved behavior, grades, and participation. 

From Our Mentees

"What I learned is to be honest to everybody, even my parents, and to keep your head up whatever happens to you."

- Dijon

"My respect level has gone up, and my grades have taken a big leap! I’ve been in the program for 3 years now and I’ve loved every second of it. Pretty much changed my life and turned me around!"

- Scott

"I learned how to live without a dad. Also, I learned how to be a kid."

- Dillon

"This program means a lot to me. It has pushed me through tough times and good times. It helps me not to get into as much trouble as I would normally get into. I think that this program has bettered me as a man and student."

- Orgon



Similar to Fades for Grades, Polish focuses on young ladies.  Through our DISCIPLINE model, participants are encouraged to strive for excellence in all areas of life from “The Inside Out.”  Polish offers a safe place for girls to express themselves through real, raw, and relevant conversations in a “nail shop” setting, rewarding them with manicures for improved behaviors, good grades, and reaching their goals.
