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 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 A 6 WEEK MENTORING PROGRAM,
WHERE WE TEACH NOT OUT OF BOOKS BUT OUT OF OUR LIVES.

 

Awaken is a place for us to meet the deeper needs that teenage girls encounter today regardless of their background.
 

How we do this:

We ask a handful of girls if they would like to “do family” with us at our space in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Each session of Awaken starts around the table as we share a homemade meal.

We use curriculum curated in-house to address relevant issues that each girl faces.

We keep the size of the groups to 5-7 girls to deepen relationships.

We get to call out the hidden dreams in each of them. And then we move to activate them. And 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 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.

 
 

THE BLOOM BUS IS OUR MOBILE STORE. WHETHER IT’S DRIVING UP TO A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL OR DRIVING DOWN A MAIN STREET, THE MISSION OF TAYLOR’S CLOSET IS ON THE MOVE!

 

Once a week, 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 kind boutique shopping experience as another way to make them feel valued and loved.

Each girl receives the attention of a personal stylist while on the Bloom Bus.

Every one of the 60-80 girls we see a month on the Bloom Bus, walks away with beautiful 3 pieces of brand new clothing and accessories from designers such as Kate Spade, XOXO, Ace and Jig, and many more. All completely free of charge.

OUR DESIRE TO BRING LOVE AND HOPE TO GIRLS IN NEED GOES BEYOND THE BORDERS OF OUR BUILDING AND EVEN SOUTH FLORIDA. THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS WE ARE ABLE TO EXTEND OUR REACH AND PROVIDE BOTH CLOTHING AND MENTORSHIP TO THOSE ON THE GROUND WORKING WITH THESE GIRLS ACROSS THE GLOBE.
