EMPOWERING YOUTH THROUGH FASHION

The F-factor designs signature programs called Fashion Workshops to impact the lives of foster children and abandoned youth.  Each workshop is a unique experience allowing children to use fashion as their tool for self-expression, define their individuality and build self-confidence.   Fashion Workshops offer  brand new clothes, shoes & accessories that suit each child's needs. 

During the workshop participants engage in group exercises and creative projects.  The dialog between volunteers and the kids is focused on understanding perception, verbal and nonverbal communication, and positive affirmations elevating their self-esteem. 

We partner with local retailers and national brands to provide new fashions for youth working hard to find stability in foster care and living on the streets. Using fashion as a vibrant medium, The F-factor has designed the following Fashion Workshops:
