Barbers, Books & Badges

The barbershop is a community institution, one of the most familiar and stable businesses in any neighborhood. Men and boys frequent barbershops, and barbers get to know customers by name and personality.  


Barbers, Books & Badges is an innovative literacy program designed to make the most of a naturally occurring opportunity: the wait for a turn in the barber chair. Participating barbershops set up reading nooks to encourage boys to read and to foster positive interactions between boys of color and law enforcement. 


We are looking to expand this program into more barbershops across East Baton Rouge Parish. Complete the interest form below to participate.
