    Success Story

    George, North Carolina

    George realizes his dream of becoming a barber

    Telamon_North_Carolina_04

    George's dream has always been to become a licensed barber and open his own barbershop.  When George was young he would go the local barbershop in Edenton, NC and watch the skilled barbers cut hair. Even though George had no formal training or a barbering license, he enjoyed practicing the techniques he learned on friends and family.

    George grew up in a farm working family. He saw firsthand how his family struggled to put food on the table and pay their bills. Times were especially difficult before and after the crop season. Living in such poverty impacted George's judgment, causing him to make bad decisions and be influenced by negative peer pressure. Through all this, George’s dream of becoming a barber remained a constant.

    After connecting with Telamon-TRC’s National Farmworkers Jobs Program (NFJP), George enrolled in a barber training program run by Pitt Community College and Altitude Academy, receiving assistance with tuition, fees, and supportive services.

    In November 2016, George completed the barber program, obtained his license and fulfilled his dream of becoming a barber. Today, George is working at a profitable barbershop in Elizabeth, NC.  He also creates barbering how-to videos which he posts on YouTube. George’s success as a barber has enabled him to purchase a car and a home, and he is now married. George is happy to be earning a living in the career he always dreamed of and he is very grateful for all the support and assistance he received from Telamon-TRC's National Farmworkers Jobs Program.
