Things are getting Haute!

On July 30, 2016 in Dallas, Shades of Success will conduct their inaugural retreat for young girls in collaboration with the World Noor Foundation at LEVEL Gallery.

Shades of Success has an ongoing mission to recognize influential, empowering, and successful women by utilizing their involvement in the community to generate awareness towards charitable initiatives. Their vision is to become a leading force to female organizations and to support various non-profit organizations across the world. Shades of Success founder, Karen Michelle, felt it important to collaborate with a foundation thatHaute Living ahoot-036 shared in her dream, which led to her recent partnership with the World Noor Foundation.

Women and children are at the very core of the World Noor Foundation’s efforts to increase access to cultural awareness through unique initiatives focusing on the arts, sports and travel. Their work is driven by the belief that the shifting roles of women and youth have become a catalyst for change in creating solid foundations in communities around the globe.

The one day summer camp entitled, “I am a Future Shade of Success” will be led by past and present recipients of the Shades of Success award in an effort to build a legacy-fulfilling platform within the tight-knit Dallas community.

The retreat’s goal is to empower and influence girls by presenting positive role models and reinforcing health and well-being in their lives. Each young girl will learn the basics of leading a healthier and meaningful lifestyle with all-day programming including; yoga, vision board class, round table discussions (anti- bullying and self-confidence) five star etiquette class and closing with a cultural immersion activity. With the support of the Shades of Success mentors and local sponsors the event anticipates having up to 50 girls between the ages of 11-17 years old registered for the retreat.
