YMCA
Suited for Success

23rd October 2017

A homeless group supported by YMCA Black Country Group spent the day at Suited for Success on Wednesday 11th October.

The group have been on a programme called ‘This is Me’ based at the Glebe centre in Walsall.

The aim of the five week programme is to support homeless men and women into accommodation, address personal challenges and gain employment. 

The workshop day at Suited for Success helped to raise the hope and aspirations of the group so they can look forward to a better future employed and fulfilled.

The first half of the workshop was spent talking about dreams, aspirations, their barriers to employment, interview preparation and how to dress for success.

Each person was then dressed and styled by a team of volunteers from Business in the Community (BITC) ready to look, feel and act the part for a future job interview.
