Suited for Success has several main programs: Employment Skills Training, Dress for Success Miami, Youth Program, and Vets for Success.
Suited for Success Employment Skills Training Program provides training opportunities for men and women, equipping them to succeed on their job search. We partner with over 100 agencies and organizations in Miami-Dade County, including Miami Dade College, Florida International University, Camillus House and South Florida Workforce. Trainings range from one-day workshops to week-long programs.
Dress for Success Miami, our women’s program, is an affiliate of Dress for Success, a nonprofit with over 150 affiliates in 30 countries. Dress for Success Miami’s programs transition women towards self-sufficiency by addressing their social and economic needs in relation to work, home and community. Each woman is a success story: she has gone from unemployment to economic independence. To learn more about our women’s program, which has served over 35,000 women since 1994, visit the Dress for Success Miami website.
Our youth program is aimed at prevention and has served over 10,000 young men and women ages 13-18. This program is geared toward at-risk youth and partners with high schools, alternative programs, and the juvenile justice system to help youth make the transition to becoming independent and successful adults. Topics include job readiness, job searching, interview skills, business etiquette, appropriate attire, attitude and ethics, and job retention skills. In addition, we are a founding member of the Overtown Children and Youth Coalition, which brings together community resources to provide opportunities for local youth to be healthy & safe, connected and productive leaders.
Our newest program, Vets for Success, was launched in 2017 to meet the needs of military veterans and family members who are looking for work.
