Where there is no vision, the people perish…Proverbs 29:18
The Metropolitan Suite (mSuite) is owned by the ReachFar Foundation a non-profit youth and young adult support organization whose VISION is to motivate, educate, and inspire youth and young adults to maximize their potential to grow within, serve up and ReachFar!
Since inception in 2013 the ReachFar Foundation (www.reachfar.org) has worked diligently to develop and cultivate healthy and positive behaviors, academics, and lifestyles amongst elementary age children. We are now pleased to begin expanding our reach to young adults and apply the same powerful methods and models to make life better for them in hopes of making our community even GREATER!
Not all young people have the blessed opportunity to achieve higher education at a college or university. So it is the goal of the ReachFar Foundation through its newest endeavor, The Metropolitan Trade Academy to offer a trade program that will teach invaluable trades such as cosmetology, barbering, nail care, professional development and other life skills to help young people succeed. Statistics have shown that young people are full of VISION, creativity and ideas. However, when those attributes have been impaired by the challenges and hardships of life at an early age, it is difficult if not impossible to restore hope and visions of a successful life, and as the Proverb goes, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…”
It is the goal of the ReachFar Foundation to restore VISION to youth and young adults who may have otherwise stopped seeing or never saw their future as bright! While undergoing the process to license the Metropolitan Trade Academy, we found that we would need to additionally license a salon that would support the student’s ability to perform clinic (practical) work to gain more hands on experience. Puzzled, we wondered how opening a hair salon would fit into our organizations non-profit purpose and agenda and after much thought (research), we’ve decided to make the salon a hub for creating SCHOLARSHIPS for underprivileged youth.
That’s right the Metropolitan Suite Beauty Lounge will serve a means for developing scholarships to further support the ReachFar Foundations mission to support our community and help others REACH FAR!! So every time an Operator reserve a station and or a client come for services, they are not only benefiting themselves, but they are participating in the BETTERING and SUPPORT OF OTHERS!
