Cesar

Cesar has lived in Brentwood his entire life. When he first enrolled in the EASTBAY Works partner Contra Costa County Workforce Development Board’s (CCCWDB) program for out-of-school youth, Cesar had a part-time job washing cars at a local car wash, a job he was not satisfied with because he knew that it would not lead to a sustainable career.

Cesar had dreams of becoming a barber and owning his own barbershop. After enrolling in CCCWDB’s Youth Program, his case manager connected him to a scholarship that paid his tuition and other expenses for a barber college in Vallejo. He completed the course earning top marks and received his Certificate of Completion for 1500 hours, in March 2012.

Since passing the state board exam and receiving his license, Cesar has been running the barbershop at the Dirty Pirate Skate Shop in Oakley. He is thrilled about his newfound success and looks forward to building skills and business knowledge.
