Community Impact - Giving Back

IMG-3511%2520(1)_edited_edited.jpg

Norman Nielsen - Philanthropist Co-founder

1939-2014

Norm did everything in his ability to change his environment and personal life, rooting out racism by giving back to BSBCA. Through education and training opportunities his goal was to change the East Oakland crime rates. He started by sponsoring his own ex felon tenants who were victims of employment discrimination to receive a free training at BSBCA. After they graduated and passed the state exam  they became employed in barber shops. These important tasks set pathways to success and made a tremendous difference in the history of BSBCA. Norm also started the "Norman Nielsen Foundation" that gives scholarships to students who are serious about changing their lives from recidivism and who demonstrate as such through academia, attendance and attitude achievements. 

He chose and empowered, Rose Munene his philanthropist co-founder to start changes in the right direction. He has left us but his spirit and legacy will continue globally.

Rose Munene - Philanthropist.

Co-founder. CEO

"The Brothers & Sisters BarberCosmo Academy"(BSBCA)

The name tells it all. We have a unique family based workforce environment. From our instructors, to our students and guests, we truly stand out. We are the best beauty school because we produce champion students in the industry, highest graduation and licensing rates and our successful students are known for becoming very successful professional business owners. BSBCA alumni instructors have been given a great education and are now giving back to the next class of students. Most importantly, our students graduate with no loans and are debt free! 

 

​Giving back does not stop in the classroom. We give back to our communities through services like Code Red (an initiative that aims to stop human trafficking), free back-to-school supplies for all students, clothing & food drives, and  neighborhoods clean-ups. Giving back is an integral part of who we are.  We live by it and we pass it on!

 

I give special thanks to God. I also thank my parents who taught me that"With God everything is possible", "Hard work always pays off", and "It takes a village to raise a child".  Lastly, I thank Norm for trusting me as a partner to continue the legacy.

Code Red - Stop Human Trafficking 

The Brothers & Sisters BarberCosmo Academy was founded in Oct. 06,2009. We started with "The Brothers" - Barbering program only. Previously, we catered to all in the community including the reentry students who had the need to change their lives around. The Barbering students outcome was very successful which created a demand for adding the Cosmetology program in 2011. BSBCA partnership with Code Red Victory Outreach to stop human trafficking also added to this great need for adding the cosmetology. Which resulted to the birth of "The Sisters" - Cosmetology which "The Brothers & Sisters BarberCosmo Academy". "BSBCA"

BSBCA has the award of "Recognition for providing equal opportunities" for all. A judgment free environment
