NICOA’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is working with Dress for Success Albuquerque to help women around the world reach economic independence. Dress for Success Albuquerque provides SCSEP participants with professional attire to secure employment. When participants are deemed job ready, they are referred to Dress for Success Albuquerque to obtain an interview outfit.
Dress for Success Albuquerque is part of an international nonprofit organization that assists women with professional interview attire along with career readiness skills and classes and networking contacts that prepare them to enter and progress in the workforce. The resources they offer have been a great benefit to SCSEP participants.
The mission of Dress for Success is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success Albuquerque, a long-standing partner with NICOA’s SCSEP, is part of a global movement for change, empowering women to obtain safer and better futures.
SCSEP is a job training program for people 55 and older. Its goal is to break the barriers of employment for older adults, such as ageism and skill gaps, and ultimately help them find unsubsidized employment. NICOA’s SCSEP is excited to be assisting women in our community.
Dress for Success Albuquerque is always looking for community agencies to join their team. If you are an organization that provides job training or employment services and would like to partner with them, email or call (505) 585-4366.
