Dress for Success Hartford
Our Career Success Coaching Program is designed to provide participating women with support through regular, structured conversations with a coach. The coaches in the program are individuals experienced in the world of work, who can offer valuable perspective, advice and encouragement. The focus of this program is on the career/work of the client, which may encompass issues from getting organized in order to be at work on time to seeking a career.
Volunteers will work one-to-one with a client for career assistance and goal setting over a two month period. There will be a total of 4-5 sessions during the two months where the client and volunteer coach/mentor will meet.
About Dress for Success Hartford
280 Trumbull Street - 2nd Floor, Hartford, CT 06103, US
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Founded in 1998, Dress for Success Hartford has served more than 8,000 women throughout our state. Our organization stems the underlying cause of cyclical poverty through grassroots programs that produce long-term solutions. By offering professional apparel, career development services, and ongoing employment retention programs we address the needs of our clients and promote economic security and self-sufficiency.
In order to ensure that we are serving those most in need of our support, every woman is referred to us through a network of partner agencies. These agencies include a variety of educational institutions, reentry programs for the formerly incarcerated, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, rehabilitation programs and more. We work with more than 140 partner agencies throughout Connecticut.
