Their Success
Is Our Success


How It Works

Step 1

Youth make an appointment with the Career Connection Center to receive a one-hour coaching session with a professional from within our community.

Step 2

During the one hour appointment each youth will receive:

  • A professional outfit: shirt, pants/skirt. We also include socks, shoes, and accessories (if available)
  • Resume review & assistance
  • A mock-interview session for interview practice
  • Career counseling & advice
  • A Career Connection Guide full of helpful tips on resumes, interviewing, job applications, job resources, dressing for success, and more.
  • A leadership/personal development book of your choice.
  • A career headshot for use in your professional development materials.

Step 3

After booking the appointment, you will be contacted by a Connections Homes representative to get your clothing sizes. 

Please note: If you do not respond to the appointment confirmation email within 48 hours, your appointment will be canceled.

Book Your Appointment

Use the calendar to schedule an appointment with a Career Coach. Simply choose the day and the available time slot you want your appointment scheduled.

Appointment times are 60-minutes in length.

You will receive an email confirming your appointment.

Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you want to be a professional coach, help sort and prepare our donated career clothing, or provide administrative assistance, there’s a place for you on our team. Your participation can change the trajectory of a young adult’s life forever.

When a young person is mentored, they are:

  • 55% more likely to go to college
  • 78% more likely to volunteer in their community
  • 90% more likely to mentor others
  • 130% more likely to pursue leadership positions

You Make a Difference.

We’ll be growing our volunteer team this spring. To stay up-to-date on all things Connections Homes and to receive notifications for our Career Connection Center volunteer events, join our mailing list!
