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.

2. The Give Away and Training
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.
