Women helping women! We have various opportunities available during the work week (closed on weekends):

Suiting Women
Dress for Success volunteers serve as personal shoppers and provide clients with career suits, cosmetics, footwear, accessories and--most importantly--a self-confidence boost.

Clothing Merchandiser
Sort and organize donations for interviews and employment.

RISE! Job Readiness Training

Job coaches needed! RISE! helps unemployed, under-employed and hard to employ women gain professional skills, accelerate their job search and build confidence through weekly training sessions. Volunteers assist women with career paths, resumes and interviewing skills. Human Resources experience preferred.

Time commitment: We hold 4 cohorts a year. Job Coaches would select the cohort they can commit 1 hour a week for eight consecutive Tuesday mornings from 11:00 to 12:00.

What coaches have said about the program: "Fun, fulfilling, inspiring, heartwarming."
