Full disclosure: the author of this website currently volunteers for Dress for Success Columbus.

Dress for Success is an international organization with 140 offices in 20 countries, almost one million women served, and over 10,000 volunteers. Their mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Services vary by branch location, but DFS Columbus provides women with professional attire to wear to their interviews and a few more outfits to wear on-the-job, once they have an offer. Their career center is stocked with books, computers, and a printer/copier/scanner/faxer. They help women with resumes and cover letters, hold meetings to discuss the workplace, and more!

DFS Columbus is always in need of volunteers to accept and sort donations, help women in the career center, plan and promote events, or work as personal stylists to help clients select professional attire to wear to their interviews and their new jobs. Prospective volunteers will need to attend an orientation, held once a month.
