Selena Gomez surprised two Los Angeles high schools with a special visit supporting the Coach Foundation’s initiatives to inspire and mentor teen girls to dream big. The surprise appearance of Gomez, the new face of the brand, with Coach’s CEO Victor Luis, raised awareness of Coach’s national charity partner, Step Up and its goal: empowering young women from under-resourced communities.
“I am truly thrilled to be involved with Coach and their support of Step Up. Step Up’s mission to empower young women is personally important to me and something even more crucial in under-served communities. Working with the young women I met today was an inspirational experience I will never forget,” Gomez said.
In support of the Coach Foundation, the Coach brand was given the opportunity to visit with the teen girls actively participating in Step Up at two Los Angeles high schools: Alliance Margaret M. Bloomfield High School and Alliance Leichtman-Levine Environmental Science High School. While girls were aware that Luis would be the guest mentor of the day, they were surprised by Gomez, who joined Step Up CEO Jenni Luke in leading the young women in a Step Up curriculum lesson designed to promote confidence and celebrate the global girl community.
Step Up’s programs provide teen girls with four years of curriculum-guided social and emotional skill development, support from mentors, and access to opportunities that will help them envision and accomplish their ambitions. (https://www.suwn.org/what-we-do/coachxstepup)
