Be.Me. Jewelry Classes
MLC holds paper beading classes for girls ages 10 to 18! After each necklace is handmade, we sell them back to the community for fundraising support! 100% of the proceeds go right back into our services. This is a great way for you to get involved in your community; you receive volunteer hours, as well as having lots of fun learning a new skill!
**Look to buy them online soon!**
Thursdays 3:30pm- 5:30pm
You will also receive community hours!! It's a win win! :)
The Be.Me. Campaign was launched by MLC in order to offer services to girls in the community, having them participate in fun workshops as well as equipping them with the tools they need to feel confident with who they are. As you may know, the world isn't kind to young women, pressuring them to look, act, and BE a certain way. We want every woman to feel like she can BE herself and not allow the pressures around her to diminish her true value.
On-going... New Series Starting Soon!
