Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We transform lives by promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged men and women. We help them transition into the workforce by providing professional attire, image counseling, and life coaching. We help people become self-sufficient; thereby reducing poverty.
The purpose of the Program is to move disadvantaged people into the workplace by educating them to present themselves well and with pride. The Program enhances the employment potential and self-esteem of each client as they begin to take control of the direction of their lives.
WHY KAMILEON’S KLOSET?
The paradox that disadvantaged men and women face, as they conclude their job training programs, is that they are ready to work, but lack knowledge about image, presentation, and life skills to become self-sufficient. They need support and encouragement, but in addition they need appropriate clothes, assistance in dressing and help with presentation skills. This is a real dilemma that can intimidate and prevent qualified candidates from applying for job interviews. Consequently, this situation can trap individuals in a cycle of poverty and dependency. Kamileon’s Kloset Program Services are designed to help people overcome this barrier and become self-sufficient.
WHAT WE DO
Professional Image Transformation: Each man and woman gets a complete makeover from head to toe. For the woman this includes a private wardrobe consultation, interview appropriate clothing, accessories, an appointment with our professional styling team, as well as grooming and cosmetic instruction and products. Each man receives a private consultation, interview appropriate clothing for blue or white-collar jobs, accessories, an appointment with our professional styling team, alterations (if needed), and a personal grooming kit.
Transformational Life Coaching (TLC) encourages economic independence and career development by providing clients with a network of support, practical information, and the inspiration to achieve self-defined success in their career and life. This Program is designed to help regain self-esteem, and develop a plan for personal and economic recovery, and learn life skills. It is the first and only employment retention model of its kind that moves disadvantaged men and women towards self-sufficiency by addressing their emotional, social and economic needs in relation to work, home, and their community. TLC consists of weekly interactive workshops on a variety of career development topics, opportunities to participate in one-on-one life coaching, mentoring, and much more.
