MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee Bucks and the Andis Foundation have partnered to host six “Barbershop Mondays” with Bucks’ community partner Safe & Sound to foster open conversations with young men about building social and emotional confidence, leadership and how youth can develop positive mentor relationships.
Barbershop Mondays will transform community rooms in Milwaukee neighborhoods into pop-up barbershops, offering free haircuts to young men between the ages of 10 to 23. The six sessions are more than just a haircut as the barbershop chairs provide the casual setting for open communication and dialogue among attendees.
The first Barbershop Monday program was held last week. Five more events are on the schedule throughout February and March. Bucks players are scheduled to attend at least two of the remaining sessions.
