Anatomy of a Pop-Up Boutique

Up to 30 students are allowed to attend a pop-up boutique. We prefer to keep the groups smaller to foster a safe and welcoming environment. 

Pop-ups begin with a lesson on self-esteem building, and the girls are given time to identify and share what they're most proud of and like about themselves. 

Students are then divided into groups of four for a team building exercise, which we refer to as shopping showdown. Each team has to dress their members according to a specific prompt using clothing from the pop-up. This allows girls to focus on the game instead of any insecurities they may be experiencing in the moment. It also breaks up existing cliques and allows girls from varying grade levels to interact. 

To finish the event, students have free time to pick out six free articles of clothing with the help of MFO staff and volunteers. Cue clothes flying everywhere!
