My Best Friend's Closet Volunteer

My Best Friend’s Closet is a youth empowerment program at Making Changes. It provides teenaged girls from low-income households with clothing and accessories to meet their school and recreational needs for the upcoming year – all at no cost to their families. My Best Friend’s Closet also provides valuable leadership and personal development opportunities to young women in the community, who volunteer in the program and act as peers or near-peers to the girls they support.

Each program participant will receive a one-on-one 90 minute consultation with a volunteer image stylist to find a wide assortment of fun and fashionable school and recreational pieces.
