Jewels for a good cause – Kendra Gives Back to Dress for Success Miami

“Jewelry is like the perfect spice; it always complements what’s already there.” – Diane Von Furstenberg

These words proved to be especially true at the Kendra Gives Back party on July 26. The event, which took place at the Kendra Scott boutique in Brickell City Centre, drew a crowd of about 50 young professionals that were eager to support the cause.

Those in attendance enjoyed drinks and sweet treats, courtesy of Kendra Scott, and learned about Young Executives for Success (Y.E.S!), a volunteer branch of Dress for Success Miami that strives to provide its members with volunteer, fundraising and networking opportunities to further our mission. Twenty percent of the night’s proceeds were donated to the organization.

Kendra Scott and the W Hotel South Beach also donated raffle prizes to raise additional funds for Dress for Success Miami. Overall, we raised $1,051, which will support Dress for Success Miami’s employment skills training programs for women.

Why I volunteer in the Career Center (and why you should consider it, too)

Why I volunteer in the Career Center (and why you should consider it, too)

When I moved from Dallas to Miami I was looking for a volunteer opportunity where I could utilize my experience in business while making a positive impact in the lives of others. What I wasn’t prepared for was the impact it would make in my own life.

As a volunteer for the Career Center at Dress for Success Miami, I have discovered a sense of passion for connecting with and giving back to those in need. I see clients every week who are passionate about finding a career; they just need some coaching from someone to locate an opportunity. Through connecting with my clients, I find that most of them are not unlike myself and have ended up in their situation through no fault of their own. I realized that in some cases I could easily be in my client’s situation, without a job or way to make a living for my family. The moment I recognized how similar we are, I began to have a true appreciation for the impact that non-profit organizations such as Dress for Success Miami have in other’s lives.

As a career center volunteer I get the pleasure of connecting with several clients each week while helping them create a resume, search for a job, or prepare for an interview. Throughout the process I am able to utilize my professional experience as a hiring manager to assist someone who is passionate about finding a career. I have discovered that volunteering at the career center is not only personally rewarding, but also develops me professionally. As I’ve learned through my own career development, listening, connecting with others, and giving regular feedback helps me become a better leader to my teams. Volunteering at Dress for Success Miami allows me to utilize those same skills to help those needing employment. Each client that visits the career center has a different background of experience, and through listening and connecting with them I am able to search for the career that best suits their needs.

As weeks and months of preparing clients for careers goes by, there is nothing as inspiring as receiving that email or phone call that of my clients has been hired. If you are looking for a looking for a way to make a difference in our community while utilizing your professional experience, please consider the Dress for Success Miami Career Center.
