Dressing for Success
Stepping inside a gleaming corporate office for the first time is an awe-inspiring experience for many of the young adults we work with – and it can be quite motivating, too!
CV has been fortunate to partner with some amazing corporations – Deloitte, Macquarie Group, Patterson Belknap, Ambac, and others. They volunteer with our kids and have invited them to visit their offices to learn about their companies and the work they do, and to interact with their staff members in meaningful ways.
Our latest partnership is with Rothschild & Co., which selected CV to be one of four beneficiaries of its Community Partnership Investment Program. They held a Dress for Success event for CV in their office in April. Our young men and women participated in workshops on job searching skills and interviewing techniques, and “shopped” for work-appropriate attire. Each attendee left with at least one complete interview outfit; one young woman left with six!
