Greg Young, Founder of The Backpack Barber Foundation

The Upreneur podcast has partnered up with SCORE, hosted by Jeremy Straub, to help bring engaging conversations with today’s top leaders and business owners. On today’s episode, we sat down with Greg Young to get his insight on how he grows his businesses, his unique story on the creation of The Backpack Barber Foundation, and how he adds value to the community. 

The Backpack Barber is an initiative started by local barber and community builder Greg Young to help address the growing homeless issue in Downtown FTL. Through giving back in the form of providing free hair cuts, hygiene supplies, and support to the homeless, The Backpack Barber makes an impact on this pivotal issue by raising awareness to it through his visual storytelling campaigns on social media.

Bringing the conversation to light and documenting real ways that anyone in the community can give back, The Backpack Barber encourages others to also make a difference while inspiring the fortunate and less fortunate to continue improving their lives everyday.
