Career Gear

Posted by Kevin D. Hendricks | Filed under: Featured Nonprofit

Career GearThey say the clothes make the man. While that's not necessarily true, the clothes can make a big difference when you're trying to get a job. Especially if you need that job to put clothes on your back and are lacking the expected business attire.

That's where the nonprofit Career Gear comes in, providing men with business clothes for interviews and helping bridge the gap between career training programs and gainful employment. Disadvantaged men coming from the streets, jail or whatever the circumstance already have the deck stacked against them. Walking into an interview in yesterday's T-shirt doesn't help. So Career Gear helps them suit up, land that all-important job, and then keep that job with further training and advancement skills.

They give men the confidence to re-enter the workforce and stay there.
