Current High School Students:

Each individual that takes part in the DATA Foundation, Inc. curriculum will finish the program in approximately 19 months. Each participant will be considered part-time within the barber curriculum due to their daily high school schedule. However, students will be allowed to adapt to a full-time schedule during breaks like Christmas, Spring Break, and Summer Break and return to part-time status once school reconvenes.

Previously Released Inmates:

Each inmate can begin the barbering curriculum while in Cook County Jail. Due to the fluctuation of the time that each inmate will be in barber class and/or their individual time served, a definite timeframe of completion is on a case-by-case basis. However, the hours obtained while in Cook County Jail will be transferred to a traditional Larry’s Barber College, where they will be able to finish the remainder of the 1,500 hours needed for graduation
