Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC) graduates are in high demand because of their expertise in the skilled trades across industry sectors.
Denver's population boom means our service industry students, like our Barbering program graduates, are especially valuable employees right now.
Floyd's 99 Barbershop recognizes this, and so partners with Emily Griffith Foundation to help create a sustainable pipeline of well-trained employees for their growing company.
Founded by brothers Paul, Bill, and Rob O’Brien, the first Floyd’s 99 Barbershop opened in downtown Denver in 2001. Floyd's 99 now has 26 shops across the state, and with a solid history of promoting from within and providing excellent growth opportunities for employees, Floyd's 99 is a fantastic partner for both Emily Griffith Foundation and EGTC.
Through an innovative scholarship fund to cover the cost of barbering state exam and licensing fees, Floyd's 99 Barbershop ensures that EGTC's Barbering students are able to enter their chosen field. Students receive needed support to complete their training, and have an awesome employer looking to hire them at the end of their program!
Floyd's 99 Barbershop partnership with Emily Griffith Foundation is a win-win for everyone involved: students receive support and job opportunities, and Floyd's gets to recruit the best and most skilled employees for their growing business.
Thank you, Floyd's 99!
