US Together

Through a partnership with US Together, refugee youth participated in a year-long mentoring program that taught participants foundational sewing skills. The program included fashion illustration, pattern design, and industrial sewing machine training.

By bridging vulnerable populations into sustainable arts-based skill-building within the sewing industry,  we empower individuals through the development of trade skills, revitalizing communities and the sewing industry, itself.

Through access to up-cycled materials and artisanal mentorship, participants:

  • LEARN about sustainability by effectively learning how to maintain & repair garments;
  • REFINE craftsmanship via knowledge and skill-building;
  • ENGAGE in innovative product creation that impacts their local community; and
  • BUILD hope — within themselves and rippling out.

Help fund a student’s path to learning valuable life skills.
