Success Events

Adults overcoming difficult challenges need a major boost to their self-esteem. Planning for re-entry into the world of work poses real barriers to men and women who do not have the professional attire to make a good first impression in an interview. Our Success Events provide job-ready candidates with the final touches they need to feel confident on the job.

Success Events mirror our signature Career Success Institute workshops and Graduation Events, except the focus is on the residents or participants of a single shelter or program. Success Event participants receive a variety of services including:

  • The Power of Your Image workshop or other career workshop
  • Personal grooming services (hair and/or make up styling)
  • Wardrobe selection (two complete outfits, including accessories)

Corporate Participation

The cost to a sponsoring corporation is $150 (plus food) per client. The Working Wardrobes Center can comfortably host 15-20 clients, plus volunteers. Corporate team-building volunteer activities during a Success Event include serving as greeters, registration staff, salon assistants, personal shoppers, food servers, wrappers and valets.
