At Silver Mirror, we are just as passionate about positive change in the world as we are about skincare.
We have a special passion for education, healthcare and women’s economic development opportunities. Each season we partner with a different non-profit to direct a portion of proceeds of our Seasonal Facials to those in need.
This fall and winter we are proud to be partnering with City Year to offer our Winter Skin Fix facial.
Please stop by Silver Mirror to try out this timely facial and help support our incredible non-profit partner City Year.
City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. City Year AmeriCorps members commit to a year of full-time service in schools, where they work as tutors, mentors and role models. Founded in Boston in 1988, City Year works in 28 cities across the United States and has three international affiliates. City Year New York was founded in 2003 and started with just 50 AmeriCorps members. Today, our 258 AmeriCorps members serve in four targeted areas in New York City, where one in every two students are at-risk of dropping out: South Bronx, East Harlem, Long Island City and East New York.
Research shows that students who are at the highest risk to drop out can be identified as early as sixth grade. AmeriCorps members receive more than 300 hours of professional training to intervene based on three early warning indicators, the ABCs – poor attendance, behavior, and course failure in math and English. By focusing City Year’s work on 3rd through 9th grades, they provide a continuum of care for struggling students, so they receive multiple, consecutive years of intervention and support.

Our first seasonal facial was the Summer of Women. A portion of the proceeds of Summer of Women went to Women’s World Banking whose mission is to provide more low-income women with access to the financial tools and resources they require need to build security and prosperity.
