Empowered Women Empower Women

Volunteers are the backbone of Dress for Success Southern Nevada. We wouldn’t exist without dedicated supporters with the hearts and the ability to give back.
Your time and expertise are valuable assets that help low-income and disadvantaged women succeed in our own community.
Volunteers make the difference in a woman’s life and her family’s lives. You assist in providing a feeling and sense of pride and accomplishment.

We have many areas in need of assistance. You might be the perfect person to help. If you love working with people, boosting others’ self-esteem, and are addicted to fashion, then we need your help.
You can change a woman’s life by empowering her as she transitions into the workforce or advances her career.

Your rapport and conversation during these private appointments will help the women nurture self-esteem and build confidence for their interview processes.

Boutique Lead

Are you looking for a way to get involved on a weekly basis and make a significant impact on daily operations? Boutique Leads have keys to the building and are responsible for opening/closing the boutique, overseeing tasks, and managing volunteers during their shift. They also have the option of being Image Consultants during the same shift.

Boutique Assistant

Do you have a talent for merchandising, interior design, fashion or color coordination? Join us at our boutique to intake, process, sort and display the clothing and accessory donations. Help us organize our inventory and make the boutique a warm and uplifting environment for our clients. Office help is also included in this area, tasks such as filing and data entry are also needed to keep things running smoothly.

Special Events / Publicity

Are you organized, a planner or a good writer? Assist with special events, like suit drives, internal and external fundraisers, or other affiliated promotions. Help with check-in and breakdown of events, publicity, soliciting donations, and sponsors for events, or send out post-event thank you letters. We can use your help!

Your skills can help clients overcome barriers to success, gain confidence, and thrive in the workplace. Professional services that are needed on an occasional basis include hairstylists, manicurists, estheticians, dentists, doctors, optometrists, attorneys, etc.
