THE GLASS SLIPPER EXPRESS
This mobile boutique and beauty studio meets girls where they are, literally, and connects them with caring adults and services. The Express allows The Glass Slipper to reach more girls in our community and provide educational workshops to help prevent sexual exploitation/trafficking.
The Glass Slipper Express (The Express) is Mobile Boutique with a two-fold mission: To provide job & life skills training for adolescent girls in foster-care, and to provide new clothing and resources for marginalized girls throughout the greater Sacramento region and beyond. It provides service learning opportunities for girls to help girls while gaining valuable job skills through fashion merchandising. RB21 Academy students organize, sort and stock the boutique to travel and serve similarly marginalized girls.
The Express arrives at partnering sites and conducts resource fairs within the facility through community partnerships. Educational workshops, Fashion, Health & Fitness, Self-Defense, Personal Style, and brand new clothing, are only some of the services provided free of charge.
2021 Update: The Express did not travel through 2020 & 2021 due to covid pandemic; however, remained accessible for girls participating in our programs and others referred by social workers and community..
If you have new clothing, and accessories you would like to donate, please contact us. We also accept jewelry, salon supplies and other necessities to equip girls with what they need to feel confident and be successful.
