Yany Foundation

a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

Empowering the Next Generation of Beauty & Wellness Professionals & Beauty + Wellness Brand Founders.

At Yany Foundation, we believe in the transformative power of the beauty and wellness industry. Through our innovative esthetician apprenticeship program, we empower young underserved women to embark on a journey of self-discovery, skill development, and financial independence. Our unique program allows aspiring estheticians to obtain their licenses while earning a competitive wage, free of charge. It's not just a Deaprtment of Labor certified apprenticeship; it's a pathway to a brighter future.

But our commitment doesn't stop there. We are dedicated to supporting underserved beauty brand founders in launching new Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) brands. Through comprehensive training, mentorship and access to shelf space within the YANY Beauty stores, we provide the guidance and resources necessary to foster success in a competitive market. We understand that by lifting others, we lift ourselves, and that ethos drives our work every day.

Join us in making a difference. Whether you're a passionate individual looking to contribute, a budding esthetician eager to kickstart your career, or an aspiring beauty brand founder seeking mentorship, Yany Foundation welcomes you. Together, let's shape a world where beauty and wellness serve as catalysts for positive change for everyone and not just the few. Get involved today, and be a part of a movement that transforms lives and uplifts communities.
