GREENBELT, MD, June 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- My Barber's Lounge owner, Davon Kelly has found the perfect way to celebrate NFTE's National Small Business Week Campaign by introducing KUTZ for NFTE Kids. This year, NFTE (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship) is providing programming for 1,100 students at 23 schools in the Washington DC Region. Kelly, who is a NFTE board member, is especially passionate about the program which encourages students to consider the path of entrepreneurship. "KUTZ for NFTE Kids engages the 17 entrepreneurial barbers at My Barber's Lounge as they donate $1 from every haircut made from June 17th to June 21st to NFTE." In addition, Davon Kelly will personally match MBL's donations to NFTE.
NFTE encourages middle and high school students from disadvantaged communities to learn about entrepreneurship, providing unique experiences that teach them to develop a concept, create a business plan, and even produce a 30-second commercial to bring their product or service to market. According to Kelly, "it is gratifying to see what amazing and innovative products and services these young people develop, as well as the creative ways they solve problems. As a result of the NFTE program, these talented kids will be better prepared when they further pursue their entrepreneurial desires."
There are many ways that entrepreneurship will be celebrated during NFTE's National Small Business Week Campaign. "Davon and the barbers at My Barber's Lounge embody the exact entrepreneurial spirit we share with our students. They are all shining examples of entrepreneurship and what it means to give back," explains Patricia Eisner, NFTE DC executive director.
