Beauty Beyond Bounds
The program we are developing, Beauty Beyond Bounds, is a way to fight back against bullying. Instead of focusing on the kids who are the bullies we are going to focus on the girls who are being bullied. We want to provide a program to help these girls learn how to develop their self confidence, poise and character. We also want them to learn self respect, and accentuate the beauty of their heart, mind and spirit.
To do this we want to provide volunteer mentors to help teach them how to dress for their body types, apply makeup and style their hair. We also plan to hold workshops to help them with etiquette and communication skills among other things.
With the help of donations from individuals, the community and businesses we plan to provide each participant with a head to toe makeover, a before and after photo shoot and culminate with a fashion show for all the girls to show off their new looks.
We are in the process of putting together a program for boys with a similar focus on building their self confidence, character and self respect as a way for boys to fight against being bullied.
