muk provide business and pamper session for Ladder young people

A group of young people from our Melbourne and Geelong programs were invited down to the muk Haircare Headquarters in Keilor Park to meet the team and hear from the co-founder, Scott Reynolds on how the business was started and how it has grown to be such a success, “I will share my business knowledge with the group, and the challenges we faced along the way, and the importance of mentors, hard work and following your dreams,” Mr Reynolds said.

Ladder CEO, Elisebath Tuckey said that corporate partnerships were crucial to Ladder as they provided invaluable opportunities to young people who may otherwise not been afforded that experience.

“With the right support, these young people can be whatever they want to be. Having corporate partners, such as MUK haircare, provide opportunities and share their knowledge with the group is so important for these young people’s development.

The young people were then offered a chance to get a cut and colour by some of the best hairdressers and barbers in Australia. Mr Reynolds said young people would be treated to a full hair experience, from cuts, colouring, styling and more.

“We have recruited volunteer hair dressers and stylists from across the Muk network to provide a full suite of services to young people from the Ladder program.

“When we reached out to them and told them about the great work Ladder do in supporting young people in need, they wanted to do whatever they could to help out.

They were also joined by AFL players, David Zaharakis, Orazio Fantasia and Sam Wright, as well as AFLW players, Karen Paxman and Brittany Bonnici who were there to support and get to know the young people. To hear more from the players watch below.
