Sunset Park-based non-profit the Center for Family Life has a new initiative called The Cosmetology School Project. Targeted at low-income individuals, the program hopes to provide a path to full-time employment for New Yorkers currently un- or underemployed.
Training will begin at one of two four-week training sessions, the first in February and another in April. Participants then enroll in an eight month cosmetology program. Applicants must be 17 or older, and hold a high school diploma, GED or demonstrate math and reading skills at an 8th grade level.
The program is completely free of charge. To find out more, you may visit the website or call 718-633-4823.
American Legion Post 965 was founded by veterans of World War I. Over the years, the Fourth Avenue building played host to $5 spaghetti dinners and $15 a plate charity fundraisers. In September, the remaining Legionnaires rented the space out to the Chen family, who opened up a 99 cent store in the former hall.
