Paul Mitchell The School complements the mission statement of its home—MTI College—by giving students the opportunity to pursue their passion for hair care in employment-driven programs that emphasize hands-on training. With the help of sage instructors, the school's aspiring stylists showcase their skills by offering trims as well as more in-depth treatments that can create dramatic new looks for their clients. A cut and style session gives hairdos a new life and coloring and texturizing treatments add depth where it's needed most. As an added bonus, every haircut includes a soothing five-minute scalp treatment that helps alleviate stress and removes long-forgotten birthday party hats.
One of the largest sewing machine companies in Northern California, Meissner Sewing & Vacuum Center has been equipping its clientele with sewing machines, sergers, and embroidery machines since it first opened in 1930. At its 20,000-square-foot Sacramento headquarters and each branch location, the family-owned business pairs machines from brands such as Bernina, Brother, Viking, Baby Lock, and Janome with classes and software that can help users hone their skills. Factory-trained technicians roam the shelves and are available to repair broken machines or interpret messages woven by fortune-telling looms.
Trained volunteer guides have led more than 500,000 people through Safetyville USA’s model town since it opened in 1984. The one-hour safety and health tours immerse preschool through third-grade students in learning scenarios. For instance, kids learn to cross a street safely by looking left and the other left. They also explore model police, fire, and sheriff stations while learning about fire and traffic safety. Health tours focus on nutrition, exercise, first aid, and hygiene. Picnic tables are available after the tours.
A career as an airline pilot. The chance to see a sunset from thousands of feet above the Earth. A quick escape to an exotic burger joint, taken at the drop of a hat. The possibilities for students who enroll in lessons at Golden State Flight Training include these and many other freedoms afforded by flight. The academy's certified pilot instructors teach pilots-to-be the ins and outs of flying an airplane, from taking off to cruising at altitude amid a flock of penguins.
Andy Siebert floated in the water, weightless—almost as if in outer space—and watched as all 40 feet of a Galapagos Island whale shark drifted past him. It’s moments like that one that Andy lives for, having devoted his life to scuba diving. He took his first dive as a teenager, but didn’t take the sport seriously until he turned 42, at which point he began his journey to log more than 3,000 dives.
Now, as owner of Scuba World, Andy works to help others discover their love of the underwater sport. One part retail shop and one part scuba-diving school, the PADI five-star IDC dive center is chock-full of gear for purchase and rental, as well as expert instructors who teach classes for divers of all levels, including instructor-level classes. Their classes range from beginner discovery sessions to open-water-certification courses to rescue-diver classes for the more advanced diver who is worried about all those fish in the ocean who need help getting out. Andy’s wife and partner, Lynn Siebert, plans trips that take divers to waters all over the world, including the nearby Monterey Bay and more far-flung expeditions in Micronesia.
