WHAT IS DOUBLE YOU CLOSET?
By joining the Double You tribe, you are offered to go through an additional experience and joining our 'give forward' project.
After each retreat, the Double You community partners with a group of young women (teenagers, mostly from minority communities) and together we create a day-long immersive experience for them. The target audience we are supporting are young women ranging from ages 16-20 and that are mostly from at risk environments.
As the name indicates this is a closet filled with actual clothing items collected by the women of our community, the clothing’s are tagged with values given by our community that can help young women reach their goals such as: Confidence, friendship, empowerment etc.
We go through an in-depth acceleration process where we first establish a safe space there the women can overcome their fears and what may possibly stop them from pursuing their dreams, we create a supportive community as a support system for following through with what they envision for themselves becoming. Finally, we dress up as our future selves, take beautiful portraits and walk on the cat-walk of our dreams where the women share their “elevator pitch”.
These teenage women become sisters in our tribe and any personal and professional relationship that is built is welcomed as an ongoing mentorship style connection.
We work together with one organization at a time, bringing women in our community to pass forward the empowerment they have received from our private retreats and workshops. If you think your organization could be a good fit for our workshops, contact us.
