Beyond the Chair®

Beyond the Chair® is a community outreach partnership program between Cleveland Clinic and Charles F. Brush High School that takes aspiring cosmetologists beyond the classroom and into the workplace. The program is designed to promote learning in STEMM+™ – Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine,
+ health and wellness, the arts, innovation, financial literacy and more, reinforcing scientific and mathematical concepts. Interaction with a real client allows students to master their communication skills.

Under the guidance and supervision of a licensed instructor, students provide non-/heated hand and arm massages and warm paraffin hand dips to chemotherapy patients. The hands-on program also exposes students to a nontraditional employment setting and reinforces positive attitudes and appropriate work ethics. Beyond the Chair® gives students a wealth of real-world experience and provides patients with a great deal of comfort.
