Education. Empowerment. Employment.
Dress for Success Phoenix is helping teens ages 16-24 successfully enter the workforce through education and empowerment. The Teen Workforce Initiative brings a specialized curriculum directly into the classroom to serve high school students and recent graduates through job readiness classes and appropriate professional attire.
Mobile Career Center
Transportation can be a hurdle for women hoping to access Dress for Success Phoenix programs, so we have created an option to bring our services to our clients. The Mobile Career Center provides many of the same great services as the Dress for Success Phoenix boutique, such as providing attire and career coaching. The Mobile Career Center also enhances partnerships with referral agencies.
We know that helping a woman look and feel her best gives her the confidence she needs to successfully begin a new career. We invite our clients to work with a personal shopper to select an outfit for their upcoming interviews. Once the client has been offered a job, she is invited to return to Dress for Success to choose a week’s worth of professional clothing.
At the Career Center, our clients gain access to the resources, support and education they need to excel in their career. Clients are paired with staff members to create resumes and cover letters, conduct mock interviews and take advantage of our professional skills training course.
Fast Track to Success
The Fast Track to Success “You got the job” is a program designed to assist unemployed and underemployed clients gain more competitive professional skills, accelerate their job search and build confidence through a one day or four-day training session. Fast Track provides clients with one-on-one career coaching, mock interviewing and networking in a supportive environment.
