Flatbush Students Volunteer at Safra Community Center Annual Fashion Show

A group of girls with an interest in fashion received an amazing opportunity from our Pathfinders Program to volunteer at the Safra Community Center Annual Fashion Show held at the Plaza Hotel in NYC.

We arrived at the Plaza all dressed in black and received magnificent scarves to wear. Then we were escorted to the third floor where we met the directors of the show and were assigned specific tasks. Some of us were asked to dress elegant and distinguished women. As dressers, we were responsible to cater to our models’ needs and to organize all of the gorgeous clothing worn in the fashion show, which were designed by Douglas Hannant. I was sent to find Ann Dexter Jones, one of the multiple jewelry designers providing jewelry for the fashion show. I was excited to meet such a highly respected journalist who writes for multiple fashion magazines, sells her jewelry in Barney’s and travels the world. We even spoke to the models giving them confidence before they walked the runway. While watching the show, I was happy that I had this incredible experience and that I contributed to such a successful event. ~Carol Sabbagh

Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School Pathfinders Program: 
Beginning in 9th grade, the Pathfinders counselors work with each student to discuss their interests and develop their goals. Students are then given a wide range of opportunities of places where they can volunteer, intern and explore their unique academic pursuits and career ideas. Through the Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program, we encourage our students to discover and expand their special talents and abilities and explore career options for the future. Whether a student is actively engaged during the school year or in the summer, we are confident that each Yeshivah of Flatbush student will find a path to success.
