Future Professionals Give Back To YMCA Campers

Temple Future Professionals treated YMCA campers to some pampering this summer while visiting various locations throughout Frederick County.

“It is always a wonderful opportunity for our Future Professionals to get to work with the young members of the community. Giving back inspires both the campers and our Future Professionals.” said Trish Kaiser, director.

“It was a fun change of pace. All of the kids were super excited and practically swarmed the table when we got there. Plus it is always nice give back to the community when you can.” said Future Professional Morgan Buchanan.

The Temple Designates FUNraiser Proceeds to Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County

In the past 14 years, Paul Mitchell cosmetology schools have raised and donated over $18.2 million to a variety of charitable organizations, including $1.1 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, $1 million to Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, $685,000 to the Gary Sinise Foundation, $370,000 to Habitat for Humanity, and $950,000 to Food 4 Africa, to name just a few.

Many Paul Mitchell schools also pledged part of the $1.5 million they raised in this year’s annual “FUNraising” campaign to charities in their local communities, for a combined total of nearly $100,000 going to worthwhile organizations across the country. The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School donated $831.00 to SHIP – Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership of Frederick County.

“We’ve partnered with SHIP many other times, than our FUNraising events in the past two years because we are impressed with the difference they make to homeless students in our community,” said Sharon Riser co-owner of The Temple. “From housing to hygiene products, after-school programs, clothing, etc, SHIP ensures that students have the essentials while enrolled in school. As a school owner we know first-hand that those essentials make a huge difference in the basic learning of any student.”

“We strive to be good neighbors, good citizens, and good contributors in every community where we have a Paul Mitchell School,” says Winn Claybaugh, dean and cofounder of Paul Mitchell Schools. “When it comes to charity, some people donate money, and some people donate their time. We do both.”

With over 100 schools across America, plus international schools in Slovenia and Taiwan, Paul Mitchell Schools have always supported local organizations and activities such as Boys and Girls Clubs, toy drives, senior centers, and other community events. Each year, hundreds of students cut hair and help out at Mother’s Day and back-to-school events at the Fred Jordan Missions in Los Angeles’s skid row, attended by thousands of women and children. In December, students and team members across the country pamper and bring holiday cheer to nursing homes and senior centers on “Ann Bowler Day,” a Paul Mitchell Schools’ tradition that honors the elderly. On 9/11 and Veterans Day, students and team members hold special events and fundraisers and provide complimentary services for their local first responders, military personnel, police, and firefighters.

Using The FAFSA To Fund Your Cosmetology Education At The Temple

by Ingrid Nelson

So, you need help paying for your education at The Temple?  The FAFSA isn’t as scary and confusing as you might think.  Follow the steps below for what to do and what NOT to do when filling out your FAFSA for your cosmetology education.

This video introduces you to what this process looks like: 


What to Do:

  • Get an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov
  • Dependent Student? Parent needs an FSA ID too
  • Visit fsaid.ed.gov
  • Sign in with Student’s FSA ID
  • Choose the 2017/2018 FAFSA
  • Add our school code: 041518
  • Use 2015 tax information
  • Sign with Student’s (and Parent’s, if necessary) FSA ID
  • Results will arrive at The Temple in 3-5 business days

What NOT to Do:

  • Losing or Forgetting your FSA ID – write it down, take a picture, save in your phone!
  • Losing or Forgetting your FSA ID!
  • Forgetting to sign the FAFSA – all results will be blank
  • Using the wrong tax information – 2017/2018 FAFSA uses 2015 taxes
  • We are The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School – not Temple University

If you have a tour of our campus in the future, fill out your FAFSA now!  We can review your results with a member of our Financial Aid Team after your tour.  Just remember it takes 3-5 business days for your results to arrive.

We look forward to meeting you and helping make your cosmetology dreams come true!
