Free Back to School shopping for under-resourced teenage gurlz in Oakland
Give Back with Style & Beauty
We aim to support and uplift girls through style and beauty. Being a teen is hard, and there is an immense pressure to be on top of the latest styles and fashion. This can be difficult for young girls who can’t afford to spend money on nice clothes. With your donation, we offer free, fashionable clothing, and provide a space where girls can explore and curate their style with the encouragement and support they need. Girls can get their nails and makeup done by professional artists, and volunteers are ready at every corner to offer advice and encouragement.
Student Shop Day: August 18th
Thank you to everyone who made the time to drop off their clothing donations. We were able to serve over 30 students across OUSD and helped them get ready with new outfits and beauty tips and tricks for school!
Contact us if you are an organization or school in OUSD to invite your students to our next Student Shop Day!

✧ Shopping ✧
Student Shop Day allowed students across OUSD to shop for new outfits in a safe environment filled with positive encouragement for the next school year. Students filled out Style Cards and teamed up with volunteer Stylists to help find pieces specific to their sizes and personal taste to take home for free!
✧ Workshops ✧
Our team of artists and tailors led fashion workshops to teach students how personalize different pieces from cutting denim and designing with paint markers. Students learned new creative ways to make clothing versatile such as transforming jeans to shorts!
✧ Glam Squad ✧
Professional artists provided services from lip scrubs, make up, hair embellishments, and gel manicures to bring out the glow in the students.
