WHO: Young ladies, ages 12-17, in Brooklyn, MD
WHERE: Enoch Pratt Library, Cherry Hill Branch
Our mission is to provide disadvantaged women with the tools needed to obtain a career and gain financial independence. We support women who are in college, trade school, the work force, and military bound, as well as their families and local communities. From workshops to motivational speakers, we raise awareness, self esteem, and empower women. Taking our career wear recipients shopping for a professional look is the fun part, watching that same woman discover her self worth is the rewarding part. Professional & successful are related.
In existence for over 4 years, we are proud to disclose all of 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 are able to see their potential!
Potential Me Roundtable
Potential Me roundtable will provide a support group and sisterhood for female students. Workshops will be held once a month on school campus focusing on appropriate attire, behavior, and values, as they grow into young women. The roundtable will also offer support to each young woman as she plans life upon high school graduation. Students taking advantage of the roundtable must have superb behavior and excellent attendance.
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! By donating your used clothing to our organization, we are able to produce funding for our recipients through eBay sales. Potential Me is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Potential Me is beginning to expand... Hiring disadvantaged women that deserve a chance at a better life is currently on our priority list. If you would like to be a part of this big picture, please donate your used clothing today. Call 410-458-3961 to schedule a pick up.
