BLOOM IS A STUDENT-LED AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM THAT TAKES PLACE AT A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL. WE TRAIN AND ENCOURAGE STUDENT LEADERS TO MAXIMIZE THEIR POTENTIAL AND TO LEAD THEIR PEERS.
In keeping with the overarching mission of Taylor's Closet, Bloom's Mission is to create a community in which girls will be empowered to live happy, healthy, and productive lives, realizing their God given destiny, right there in the hallways of their high school campus.
TO ACHIEVE OUR MISSION:
We create a student-led, weekly club and after school program at local high schools.
We train and encourage student leaders to maximize their potential and to lead their peers. Areas of development are focused on organization, teaching, planning, speaking, fundraising and connecting with their peers.
We engage the girls who attend the club in a healthy dialogue about important issues that affect each of their lives.
We conduct workshops focused on design and art to help girls unlock their creative talents.
We create a safe place for students to share some of the struggles they are experiencing.
We offer a shopping experience via our mobile store called the Bloom Bus. We park our mobile store outside the high school every week, and allow our Bloom girls to shop for brand new designer clothing - all for free - as another way to make them feel loved and valued.
Currently we are stationed in one local South Florida high-school, Fort Lauderdale High. We hope to expand the Bloom program into more South Florida high schools as we grow.
