We have implemented two job readiness courses for our clients, as well as have established and grown Y.E.S! Palm Beaches, our very own networking group for young, professional women under 40 in Palm Beach County.
We work with approved referral agencies in our community who send job-ready women to our career transformation center. Referral agencies include domestic violence agencies, homeless shelters, and job-training programs.
Dress for Success provides each woman with one suit and accessories when she has a scheduled job interview. We also provide interviewing skills so that each woman feels comfortable with her upcoming interview. When a client successfully lands the job, she can then return to Dress for Success to get up to a week’s worth of business-appropriate separates.
If for some reason a client does not get the job she interviewed for, she can join one of our job readiness courses where she will receive the DISC profile, resume assistance, get additional interview coaching, and be paired up with a mentor to assist her on her journey. Next Step, is our job readiness course for young women, ages 18 to 24, who are at risk or are aging out of foster care and lack the skills and abilities to obtain employment and break the cycle of poverty. New Directions is a job readiness course for women ages 25 and older, who are either unemployed or underemployed.

Ageism is something that a lot of women deal with when trying to get back into the workforce or are trying to make a change in their career. We see it quite a bit with the women we serve. This is why our New Directions job readiness program is so important. The participants are learning how to reinvent themselves, how to market themselves, how to show their value, and how to land that job regardless of their age! #DressforSuccessPalmBeaches #DressforSuccess #EmpowerHer #FYIFriday https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/08/style/women-age-glenn-close.html

As we close out 2018, all of us at Dress for Success Palm Beaches are so thankful to all of our fabulous volunteers, sponsors, community partners, donors, and friends. Without your help, the over 600 women served in our job-readiness and suiting programs would not have been given the confidence and tools they needed to become self-sufficient and economically independent. There is still a lot of work to do and we hope that you will consider making one last year-end, tax-deductible donation to help the women we serve. https://bit.ly/2A9FTII We wish you all a very happy, healthy, and prosperous new year. We cannot wait to see what awaits us in 2019! P.S. Keep a watchful eye out for a very exciting announcement coming soon about our luncheon. It's going to be ICONIC!!
