Our first Power Tie Give Away on Nov. 2, 2016 at Poly High School was a ringing success. We presented to Ms. Libby Huff's class who were preparing for an outside business related field trip.
We accomplished our goal of reaching out to young, male students and providing them with information and a useful, necessary skill they can use and apply as they move forward in life.
1. Power Partner Professionals Present - Get the Message Across
Poly High Freshman and Sophomore students first heard from business professionals. The professionals explained why and when they wear a tie and how they view themselves and others in a necktie.
2. The Give Away and Training
Each student selected a tie from one of several donated to PPUSA. The professionals then divided up the class into smaller groups and gave them first hand instruction on how to tie the necktie. Every student was attentive, eager to learn and they even helped each other out.
Included with the tie was a free haircut at Envy Beauty Studio in downtown Long Beach.
3. The End Result
The students realized the reasons and benefits of owning and wearing a necktie.
We interviewed students for their reaction and feedback. You could see their sense of accomplishment in learning how to knot their own necktie.
No more clip on ties for these young men. Each student walked out with a new appreciation for dressing professionally. They also now have a new tie to add to their collection. They felt confident that they could tie their own necktie and were looking forward to representing themselves in the best light possible.
The professionals all felt good about their contribution and plan on attending the next Power Partners USA Power Tie Give Away.

4. Applying their New Skill
The timing for our message and Power Tie Give Away was perfect. Students wore their ties the next day to a professional business event which required them to dress for success and represent themselves well.
