Mosaic in Colorado Springs

In March of this year, Mosaic in Colorado Springs kicked off the Career Explorers program through our day services. The program gives the people we serve a behind-the-scenes look at a variety of jobs they might be interested in. Our first job shadowing site was the Tony & Guy Hairdressing Academy. People in service had a great time hearing from the students and were all given a free service that day! Some chose to get their nails done, while others chose to get their hair trimmed or colored. 

“I’ve never met someone who does my hair the way I like it the first time,” said Dustin Blackburn, served by Mosaic in Colorado Springs. “I would definitely go back to the guy who did it there. He was awesome and talked to me about all kinds of stuff.” Thank you to Tony & Guy for making this an awesome experience for the people we serve and for inviting us into their school. Since this outing, we have done several other Career Explorers site visits, and the activity gets more popular with each exploration.
