Fundraisers to Win a Mentor

Bellus Academy is raising funds in a national competition to win a one-of-a-kind mentoring experience with a beauty and wellness icon. The action begins in January and continues through February.

The BCL Mentorship Experience is a national fundraising competition among beauty schools. Beauty and wellness students across the U.S. are competing to win a day of on-campus mentoring from an icon in the industry. The two schools raising the most funds – and one randomly selected “wildcard” school – will receive a day of learning and inspiration from an industry legend. Funds raised benefit the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit that awards tuition scholarships to beauty and wellness students.

The opportunity has sparked fierce competition. Mentors include: Andrew Carruthers, education director of the Sam Villa company; Jen Planck, master stylist and inspirational speaker; Yolly Ten Koppel, global Artistic Educator, Pivot Point International.

Here are the fundraisers at Bellus Academy campuses that you can participate in to help win some money. Details will be added as they become available.
