CLIENT SERVICES

PROFESSIONAL SHOP


At Potential Me, we thoroughly understand that when it comes to interviewing for a new position at any workplace, “first impressions are lasting impressions” with that being said, our staff wants you to look and feel your personal best so that you are interview ready. Once you are referred to us through an agency, we take you on a "professional shop" for professional work attire before your job interview. Our "professional shop" includes us taking you to a retailer to be properly fitted for 1 business professional look and 2 business casual looks. This also comprises a small makeover to make sure your hair and/or makeup are also workplace appropriate.

As our client, we want you to feel whole, which encompasses more than just suiting, that makes all the difference.

TRANSPORTATION:


If a client is in need we will provide transportation services for the initial interview to their designated work sites. This added effort ensures that they are not only dressed appropriately and interview prepped, it makes sure that all our clients reach their interview sites on time.

We go the extra-mile for you!

SKILLS TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Potential Me's mission is to provide women with the tools necessary to successfully enter the workforce and gain financial independence. Supporting women in discovering their self-worth and reaching their professional and personal goals, we host small focus groups, workshops and seminars. Some of our key programs feature networking opportunities, leadership building, literacy courses, "soft skills" training and mock interviews.

These programs help our clients to overcome barriers to employment, build their confidence, and challenges them to be their professional best.

Through programs which include monthly meetings and motivational speakers we seek to provide you with learning opportunities and strategies to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide disadvantaged women with the tools needed to obtain a career and gain financial independence. We support women who are in college, trade school, the work force, and military bound, as well as their families and local communities. From workshops to motivational speakers, we raise awareness, self esteem, and empower women. Taking our career wear recipients shopping for a professional look is the fun part, watching that same woman discover her self worth is the rewarding part. Professional & successful are related.

In existence for over 4 years, we are proud to disclose all of our recipients have taken the next steps to independent living. A 100% success rate.

By selling donated items on eBay we are able to take each recipient shopping for the garment that gives them the highest level of confidence. With a new look, they are able to see their potential!

Our Purpose

Having the ideal garment for a special or professional occasion will build confidence and relieve anxiety for young women that do not have the means to make that dream a reality independently. In this economy, some are not fortunate enough to provide their loved ones with more than just the necessities to live. That's where Potential Me comes in! By being a stellar student or having a job interview lined up, program applicants will be able to earn their prom/homecoming dresses or career wear. The hope is to build confidence, support high self esteem, remove insecurities, and maybe even ignite a few tears of joy! By donating your used clothing to our organization, we are able to produce funding for our recipients through eBay sales. Potential Me is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

We would like to thank you for your huge contribution to Potential Me by hosting corporate clothing drives to further our mission.
