Having the ideal garment for a special or professional occasion will build confidence and relieve anxiety for young women that do not have the means to make that dream a reality independently. In this economy, some are not fortunate enough to provide their loved ones with more than just the necessities to live. That's where Potential Me comes in! By being a stellar student or having a job interview lined up, program applicants will be able to earn their prom/homecoming dresses or career wear. The hope is to build confidence, support high self esteem, remove insecurities, and maybe even ignite a few tears of joy!
Columbia Montour of Bloomsburg, PA is our official school for PROM 2014!
Our mission is to provide the ideal dress or suit to young women unable to afford to make their special or professional occasion a dream come true! We support women that are college, trade school, work force, and military bound, as well as their families and local communities.
Women take charge naturally and excel at multi-tasking, along with delegating tasks. With these qualities every woman should be a contributing member of society. Studies show, however, there are 10 basic reasons why people do not succeed:
1) lack of opportunity;
2) bad influence;
4) lack of belief in themselves;
5) lack of education;
6) underestimating of capabilities;
7) lack of passion;
8) lack of determination and discipline;
9) lack of organization; and
10) lack of action.
Potential Me strives to alleviate all of these causes, thereby allowing a woman to understand what may be holding her back, and what actions she must take to move forward.
In existence for over one year, we are proud that all our recipients have taken the next steps to independent living. A 100% success rate!
By selling donated items on eBay we are able to take each recipient shopping for the garment that gives them the highest level of confidence. With a new look, they see their potential!
