Rasaan was hired as shop keeper at Upscale Tonsorial Parlor (UTP), a barber spa on Laurel Bowie Road in Bowie specializing in haircuts, razor lines and lather shaves. Rasaan discovered this position with the assistance of his Employment Consultant, Devin Smith via a referral from our Activities Coordinator, Sahr Lebbie.
During the negotiation phase, the folks at UTP, who are excited to have Rasaan on board, determined that he could bring more to the shop than what was listed in his initial job duties. Future plans include the opportunity for Rasaan to operate his own micro-enterprises (a small business within a business).
Rasaan is absolutely thrilled to be employed and is even more excited about the potential of owning his own business. Thus, the Ardmore team started working with him to develop his business plan, but he was a step ahead and has already decided on the name: Rasaan's Shoe Shine.
