Service to our Community and Sharing Smiles

Avancé Beauty College loves to be involved with and give back to our community.  This includes participating in charitable events to providing a lending hand to those in need.  These experiences are unforgettable for both the participants and our school.  We make changes in how people feel about themselves to providing services that makes a difference to the community and our college students.  Our success not only comes with what our students gain or accomplish in life, but is also reflected in what they do for others in the community.  These are some of the events that our school and students have had the opportunity to be involved with:

  1. House of Sophia: Avancé Beauty College maintains an ongoing community relationship with the House of Sophia, which is a nonprofit Christian organization in San Diego that provides a structured 90-day program for women suffering from physical abuse, substance abuse, and traumatic events requiring rehabilitation.  In an effort to assist in the recovery process and rebuild self-esteem; the students of Avancé Beauty College provide free hair, nail, facial and make-up services to the residents of the House of Sophia.  This is an extremely enriching and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
