Dress for Success Colorado is an affiliate of an international non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women located in more than 125 cities across 15 countries. The professional clothing, employment retention programs and ongoing support that they provide to their clients symbolize their faith in every woman’s ability to be self-sufficient and successful in her career.

As part of the 2015 International Coaching Week, Dress for Success and ICF Colorado are joining forces and our members are being asked to donate their time to help these women grow their confidence and professionalism through coaching. Many Dress for Success clients have been negatively affected by the recent job market decline and are seeking new positions; others simply may want to improve and update their portfolios for future employment opportunities.

TWO WAYS ICF COLORADO MEMBERS CAN VOLUNTEER:

1. We need two volunteers for every time spot on May 19-22 between 10am-3pm.
Location: 1510 High St, Denver, CO 80218.

2. Dress for Success is looking for a presenter for a life skills class that will be offered to their Professional Women’s Group on Tuesday, May 19th from 6:30pm-8:00pm.

Location for this presentation: 711 Parke Ave. West, Denver, 80205 (United way building)

Typical Professional Women’s Group attendance is 10-20 people; we can invite 1 coach or a team of coaches for the Professional Women’s Group Meeting.

Their request for topics include:

  • Life Skills Training (well-received)

  • Advantages of Coaching
  • What a Coach Is and Does
