Gene Juarez Academy offers much more than learning the necessary skills to get a cosmetology license — we also provide opportunities for leadership and creative development. Cosmetology students who are driven to get as much out of their education as possible have the opportunity to get involved in the Student Ambassador program.
As the voice of the student body, Ambassadors are the leaders on campus. They welcome and mentor new beauty school students, provide feedback to campus management, and participate in community events and marketing projects for the cosmetology school. Ambassadors learn valuable skills while influencing others with their passion for the salon and spa industry and dedication to their cosmetology education.

What I value most is the community here at GJA. Throughout your education, you meet instructors, friends and guests.

As a Student Ambassador, I enjoy being the voice for all of my fellow classmates.
