Dear Friends, Partners and Family
If there is one thing for certain, the resilience of our community is unmatched. With many of our Creative Scholars, friends and partners working from home and staying indoors, we wanted to ensure you all are not just taken care of, but informed during this unprecedented time. As the fight against COVID-19 continues across the city and the world, we wanted to reach out and update you on our plans and efforts.
We are eternally grateful for you supporting our scholars and helping us reach our goals. Our International Summer Workshop, set to take place in Guyana, South America has been postponed indefinitely. Travel to South America has been suspended by our Airline Provider–JetBlue. All donations will be held and utilized for this initiative at a later time.
In the interim, we are still committed to pouring into our community. As our Creative Scholars and families are transitioning into a new way of life, we still want to connect with our bright community and have implemented alternative programming that we are proud of and elated to share: FWFA Create From Home and FWFA Digital Summer Workshop.
Through our Create From Home digital workshop event launching on June 6, 2020 we will provide a fun, affordable and fashion entrepreneurship workshop for Creative Scholars (ages 9-16) across the country. The workshop will feature hands-on and creative activities including: a live virtual DJ, digital swag bags, a digital merch. shop, interactive fashion challenges, rewards and more.
Our Digital Summer Workshop launching on July 6, 2020 and continuing through July 31, 2020, will give you the quintessential FWFA educational experience in the comfort of your own homes. Registration begins May 29, 2020 and continues through June 23, 2020.
Should you have any questions or would you like to receive additional information, please do not hesitate to reach out.
