Many non-profit organizations in the Triad do meaningful and excellence work through their services and mission-driven causes. The founders of Heads Up For Our Youth, Rick Morton and Dwayne Shaw are doing just that! These men know that the barber industry is more than just a business. It benefits the community as a social hub producing resources and relationships. Morton and Shaw in conjunction with their dedicated barbers, clients, volunteers, sponsors, and board members have serviced the community through creative programs and events that include components such as Barbering & Grooming, Mentoring,  Athletics, Financial Literacy, Community Outreach and Educational Seminars in hopes of developing strong productive leaders for the triad
Financial Literacy is an important component to the needs of our youth. Our goal is to provide them with tools and resources that help move them towards the goal of financial success in their life. Not just on a Regional level but also on a Global Scale. As a Non-Profit Organization, one of our core focus is providing knowledge and information that empowers those living in underserved communities.
Heads Up For Our Youth partners with TGK Athletics to offer free athletic skills and drills clinics for young athletes. These clinics teach basic sports fundamentals as well as in depth training to enhance player skillset, knowledge and conditioning.
These events feature professional trainers along with community volunteers.

This year HUFOY plans to expand our Back to School Rally to impact even more children. The Back to School Rally has been one of our most successful events to date. This year it will be held on Sunday, August 18, 2019 at the Greensboro Coliseum Fieldhouse. Your donations allow us to expose youth to opportunities, individuals, and concepts they may not otherwise experience. This event is a collaboration with community leaders, sponsors, vendors, and partners like you in the Greater Greensboro Area. It is a FREE celebration; a rallying cry and a momentum building experience to prepare the youth for the start of a new school year. This year the event will be moderated by Street Ball Legend Announcer Joe Pope. It will feature music, games, a basketball skills clinic offered by our partners TGK Athletics, a step show, and other surprises. Youth in attendance will have the opportunity to win various prizes, and the day will culminate in our celebrity Battle of The Barbers Basketball Game.
We need your support to make this important event as successful as possible. Your financial contributions and donations of school supplies and other goods will create opportunities in the lives of the youth we serve, sowing seeds of confidence, motivation and ambition in their lives. We are grateful for our event sponsors who have made an early commitment: Sprint, Greensboro Coliseum Complex, Staples, Walmart, Flow Buick/GMC/Land Rover, Heads Up Barber and Beauty, Greensboro Swarm, Greensboro Police Department, Starbury Corporation and Coalition DJs.
