Employment Workshops

    Wings for Success helps women build confidence not only by providing free work-appropriate clothing, but also by providing free Workshops to support our clients as they embark upon their job search and prepare to start new jobs.  We provide Workshops in partnership with several agencies in the region, as well as several annual Workshops that are free and open to the community.  Spanish-speaking presenters are available upon request.

      If you would like to attend one of our Workshops, please check our Events listing to see what we are currently offering.

    Wings for Success offers the following Workshop topics:

    Community Workshops
    We hold Workshops in the community throughout the year.  These are free and open to the public.  Any current workshops are listed in our Events section.

    Workshops at Partner agencies 

    Acing the Modern Workplace
    What does it take to get the job done on a daily basis?  This workshop is targeted to a younger audience who may benefit from advice on what is appropriate - in mannerisms, self-presentation, and communication.  We want to help young women earn respect in the workplace by being true to themselves and building on their own strengths.

    Dressing to Succeed in the Workplace
    First impressions are everything!  You may have the answers to their questions, but what does your outfit say about you?  Wings wants you to stand out from the crowd and present yourself in a positive way.  This Workshop provides tips on how to dress to get the job you want.

    Interviewing Skills
    This workshop provides guidance on how to make a great first, and lasting, impression during the interview.  We review what a potential employer expects at this first meeting, and how to handle the tricky interview questions.

    Financial Sensibility
    Understanding personal finance and making smart decisions about money is more important than ever.  Our professional partners at Clarifi will be providing fundamental lessons to help individuals and families build strong foundations for lifelong financial literacy!

    Wearing the Right Attitude 
    Wearing the right outfit and acing the interview can help you get a job, but how can you keep the job?  This Workshop will help you change your attitude about your job, review workplace behavior, and give you some tips on how to be successful in the workplace.

    Professional Image Makeover
    Wings periodically holds a Professional Image Makeover Workshop, where trained stylists and makeup artists donate their time and materials. During her makeover, a client is treated to professional hair styling, makeup lessons, and an interview outfit.  The transformations our clients experience are amazing. Visit our Before/After Photo Gallery to see for yourself not only how great the women look, but to see in their faces and body language how terrific they feel.  Note: Makeover workshops are extended by invitation. 

    Many thanks to  for our workshop refreshments.
