Giving Back

Giving back to the community through philanthropy and volunteerism is an integral part of the values both practiced and taught at The TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School. Not only do we believe it’s important to support the area we live in, we hope to instill that importance in our future professionals.



Raising Dollars and Nurturing Volunteerism

Through our Donate Love fund, The TEMPLE: A Paul Mitchell Partner School team and future professionals have raised over $200,000 for local and national organizations. They also bring many nonprofit organizations into the school to educate students on how to give back and support the community thru volunteerism.

Since 2005, we have volunteered in raising funds, providing services and donating gift certificates or beauty products with more than 100 nonprofit organizations. In just the last year we worked with the following organizations:
