Fullness Christian Vocational Training Centre (FCVTC), the precursor of Fullness Christian Social Enterprise (FCSE), was set up in 1987.(Avantage Ventures, 2009) Set up in 2007, FCSE was derived from FCVTC. It currently owns an auto service centre and two hair salons.(Avantage Ventures, 2009) One of the salons is Fullness Salon. Opened in 2001 in Mongkok, it moved to beside Sai Wan Ho Youth Outreach Centre in 2004.
For social missions, it aims at helping deviant youth reintegrate into society by Christian faith, vocational training, mentoring, counselling, and rehabilitation. (Social Ventures Hong Kong, 2010, p.13) For business missions, it aims at providing customers with high-quality services, retaining sustainability in business and developing a potential for further development.
In 2005, there are 3258 youths being led astray. Most of them are sentenced to prison and 293 of them are sent to vocational center. (Social Sciences Research Centre, the University of Hong Kong, 2005) Although some of them find employment, many employers have reservations on hiring these people. Long term employment or professional careers are often out of reach for them.(Avantage Ventures, 2009)
Fullness Salon employs deviant youths as hair-stylists in order to allow them to learn a practical skill, thus increasing their chances of employment and reducing their chances of repeating offence. (Ã§Â´â‚¬Ã¦Â²Â»Ã¨Ë†Ë†Ã£â‚¬ÂÃ©â€žÂÃ¦â€¢ÂÃ¨ÂÂ¯, 2008, p.24)
Fullness Salon has a very stable customer source. The customer base started from Christians in churches. Around 70% to 80% of the customers are Christians, who are willing to help deviant youth. By spreading through words of mouth, friends and relatives of the Christians gradually join the customer base.
Hair-stylists provide hair-cutting and other hair treatment services. They also teach and train apprentices, helping deviant youths to adapt to normal working environment. Volunteers from Christian organizations organize Christian fellowship activities for deviant youths. Board of directors focus on promotion and plan long-term business strategies for sustaining the operation.
