Job Board:

     Bremerton School District-Esthetics Instructor

West Sound Tech & Olympic College have a partnership for Esthetics and Cosmetology programs in Bremerton WA.

This would be a great opportunity for someone who has experience starting a program. The program has been established for many years but has been small. Now it is growing and needs to have someone who can re-create a solid program. This is the only school in the area. Registration is full and classes begin Sept. 19. An instructor is needed as soon as possible.

The Beauty of Hope 

These are the candles given to speakers and a lucky audience member by the Northwest Aestheticians' Guild.

  Founded by two Seattle women, The Beauty of Hope is a luxury candle and lifestyle brand that aims to uplift and empower women by donating a portion of proceeds to help end human trafficking. These donations provide much needed resources to those forced to endure human trafficking and those working to end it. The Beauty of Hope is a for-profit company which allows for flexibility in fundraising and allocation that non-profits often aren’t able to attain.

                                               Human Trafficking

While this information can be hard to hear, our goal is not to focus on negativity but to bring awareness to an often unseen world.On any given night, between 300 and 500 minors are exploited on the streets of Seattle.

  • The average age of entry into prostitution in the United States is between the ages of 11-13.
  • 1 in 3 runaways will be recruited by a pimp within 48 hours of leaving home.3
  • 80-90% of girls involved in prostitution are under the control of a pimp and do not keep any of the money they make.
  • 82% of prostituted individuals surveyed had been physically assaulted.
  • 83% had been threatened with a deadly weapon.
  • 79% of prostituted individuals reported being physically assaulted by their customers.
