You have to see the transformation that takes place here.

 

When we meet a girl, hardened and bruised by a lifetime of things you can’t imagine, and she feels safe to be herself, to share her story, and find her worth...It’s beautiful. And moving.

And you’ll never ever be the same again.

 

THAT’S WHY WE DO THIS. TRANSFORMATION. WE GET TO WATCH DAILY & WEEKLY AS YOUNG GIRLS OPEN UP, RECEIVE LOVE, AND START TO CHANGE THE CYCLE IN THEIR LIVES.

 

It’s all about becoming a family here at Taylor’s Closet. Our heart is to go deeper with the girls. Inspiration happens. And because of that dreams begin to take root in a girl’s heart.

 
 

Awaken is about teaching and nurturing –

not out of books – but out of our lives.

 

Every teenage girl is in need of something. Whether it’s validation, a place to be heard, tools to overcome the trials she faced in her past, or simply someone to come alongside her to speak to her worth and identity.

Awaken is a place for us to meet those deeper needs. To us those words are a call to reach into these girls’ lives and extend a hand - in a genuine way - demonstrating unconditional love.

We ask a handful of girls if they would like to “do family” with us. For a period of time, we commit ourselves to teaching and nurturing – not out of books – but out of our lives.

We teach, we learn. We get to see deeper into the lives of these girls, as they see deeper into ours. We get to call out the hidden dreams in each of them. And then we move to activate them. That’s why we call it Awaken.

 
 

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 a high school.  

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.  

Our mobile store is available for our Bloom Girls to shop for new accessories and clothing all for free.

 
 

Whether it’s driving up to a local high school or driving down a main street, the message of Taylor’s Closet is ON THE MOVE!

 

Our mobile store is parked onsite at the local high school, and is accessible as a reward to those who attend Bloom regularly.

We invite girls on the Bloom Bus, giving them a one of a kind curated boutique shopping experience. With attention from a personal stylist and beautiful brand new clothing and accessories from designers such as Kate Spade, XOXO, Ace and Jig, and many more, every one of the 60-80 girls we see a month on the Bloom Bus, walks away feeling loved and valued.
