ENTREPRENEURSHIP & EMPOWERMENT THROUGH BLACK HAIR
We believe it takes a holistic approach to uplift and empower our Black youth. JGS equips students with everything they need to level the playing field for their transition into adulthood.
AHEAD OF THE REST
Our flagship program Ahead of the Rest, provides interactive workshops, after-school programs, and camps that teach Black girls entrepreneurship and empowerment through hair-centric lessons.
With the support of Ahead Academy, we provide free workshops, after-school programs, and camps to Black and Brown girls on the south and west sides of Chicago.
