#ProjectSHEcan is the non-profit initiative behind SHEcan, inc. designed to empower, inspire, and prepare young girls ages 13-18 for lifelong careers in the fashion and beauty industry, while teaching a powerful message about positive self image. Our objective at SHEcan, inc. Is to partner with local organizations to help bring our mission to life. Our non-profit initiative was created to help young girls tap into their creative gifts, by creating an environment that is both enterprising and inspiring. We know that young girls in our focused age groups may not have opportunities like ours due to lack of financial resources, program availability, and/or self –confidence. Our program is unique in its design because it is a mentorship program that brings the whole fashion community together to give back their skill sets and knowledge to our younger generation. We are working on creating lifetime opportunities from scholarships, internships, and even trips such as NYC Fashion Week. Not only are we giving our talents to the girls who come through our program, but we want to instill in each of them the meaning of giving back. With each partnership our goal is to create community service projects based on the skills the girls are taught. This could be as simple as girls sewing garments for homeless kids, or working in a boutique for the day helping a local shop owner. The opportunities we create together are limitless with everything being left to the imagination. We have the opportunity to submit this idea to Clinique/Ted smart ideas 2015 for a chance at $20,000 to launch our program and the opportunity to attend the 2016 forum. The funding will be used to help get our brand out there in the industry. We have partnered up with Imaginal Marketing Group out of Hammond, La who is responsible for top brand marketing in this industry. Everything raised will go back to branding and marketing as well as outreach and further development. There are so many things left to do, but making our presence known in this industry is our first step in launching this great endeavor. As you read about our mission and vision, please consider partnering up with us and let’s work together to breathe inspiration into the lives of young girls everywhere. We are so excited about the opportunity to work with young girls all over the country and we know with your help, together we can create a better tomorrow!
