Social Impact


The GoAhead Revolution is a social and economic inclusion project aiming to bring disadvantaged youngsters between 18-22 years of age into the world of work. The idea of ‘Un Taglio Solidale’ association is to bring this younger generation into direct contact with hair professionals, giving them a real opportunity to grow. The object is to make vulnerability a resource to grow as an individual but also as part of a team. For this reason, U.T.S association together with RiccioCapriccio hair salon decided to create a network of professionals (hair salons and trainers) with the goal to create a new generation of hairstylists with an innovative vision of the profession and an entrepreneurial mutualism aimed at encouraging creativity and job opportunities. The project involves a network of four salons in the Lazio region. Firstly the coordinator and cofounder of GoAhead Revolution RiccioCapriccio (Rome),Maxenio Hairstyle, Click parrucchiere&barbiere and Bellessere parrucchieri. For the selection of the young people we are supported by some of the main Charitable associations in Rome namely: Save the Children, Civico Zero, Cies Onlus, Cora Roma Onlus, Ass. Casa delle donne Lucha Y Siesta and with some interest shown by C.O.L of Rome. These associations work to direct teenagers into safe work environments and courses. The project is ideated for a maximum of 10 participants and will be spread out over 10 meetings lasting for two months and a half. These months will be divided into three phases:
-Exploring the workplace
-inspirational workshops.
-how to find a job.

The meetings and workshops will be held by expert trainers and hair professionals, covering different aspects of the job. The intention of the project is to create a course based on:
– Learning by doing: learning to get involved, observing participating, and experimenting.
– Co-sharing: sharing each others experiences and knowledge.

Coming to the end of the project the participants that are most interested in the profession will have the possibility to get involved in the third phase of orientation and training on the job, with the possibility to access a paid internship or an apprenticeship in the network of salons and new ones.
