My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond Preparing Men for Success with Suits For Success III
My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond will conduct a two-day workshop, May 20 and May 21 to promote the advantages of a professional mindset and professional attire to economically disadvantaged young men. After completing the workshop, MBK will provide each participant with professional attire to secure employment, but “Suits for Success” is much more than simply a new outfit!
“Suits for Success” is one of our community outreach solutions that encourages young men to break the cycle of poverty; mentally, physically and spiritually,” said MBK Founder and Executive Director Stephan “Coach” Hicks. “In addition to physically equipping each young man with apparel and accessories, our authentic manhood programs, career development tools and resources, and our network of support will equip, empower and encourage young men to thrive in work and in life!”
This year’s theme is: “Expanding My Support Network”. The keynote speaker for “Suits for Success III” is Clyde Farris, talk show host and author of “Etiquette for the Black Male.”
MBK is accepting young men ages 16-25. The workshop will be held May 20, 6 pm to 9 pm and May 21, 9 am to 2 pm at the offices of My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond, 1618 Hull Street, Richmond, VA 23224.
The organization is also accepting donations of suits, dress shirts, ties, accessories, garment cleaning services, or men’s toiletries, as well as financial contributions. Those interested in making donations, being a presenter or recommending a participant should contact Stephan “Coach” Hicks by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
