Aspiring youths in difficult circumstances
The youths that we take on board are from low-income families. Most of them are either born into poverty or are stuck in unskilled jobs that pay very little, hence they struggle to move out of the poverty cycle.
Besides struggling with poverty, the needs for autonomy & competency are also important. Youths want to feel empowered and have ownership of their career choices. It aspires them to dream further than just hanging out with friends. Learning a set of skills with gainful employment will empower the youths to be financially self-sufficient to break the poverty cycle. It will improve their self-esteem & help them to believe that they can realise their dreams. Hence, you are partnering with Salon Social to make an impact in the lives of youths when you book an appointment with us.
Most of the single mothers are the main and sole caregiver of their children and have very limited childcare assistance. Majority of them are unable keep a full-time job due to inflexible working hours.
It is also extremely difficult to find a part-time job to make room for family time, especially one that does not require both Saturday and Sunday.
To add to their woes, most of them also lack the time and money to invest in skills enhancement. This poses a significant long-term challenge in moving themselves and their families out of the poverty cycle.
On the other hand, sufficient family time and understanding employers lead to greater fulfilment. Many also like on-the job training and enjoy the social interaction that a job offers. Hence, you are partnering with Salon Social to make an impact in the lives of single moms when you book an appointment with us.
