Professional Wardrobe, Inc., was founded in 2000, by Dr. Julia E. Antoine, President and CEO of ENVISION Business & Computer School, who recognized a need for such services, as a result of having trained a large number of disadvantaged, displaced and foreign nationals. These individuals, upon completing training, experienced great difficulty securing employment, due in large part to a language barrier, lack of appropriate professional attire and a lack of self-confidence and self-esteem.
Professional Wardrobe, Inc, is a 501(c) (3), non-profit organization that was established
“…to assist disadvantaged and unemployed men, women and youth gain confidence, pride and dignity as they seek employment, by providing a quality program where people can find the help and support they require to meet their basic literacy needs, as well as, enhance their professional image and work ethics, thus facilitating a smooth transition from a life of dependency to one of self-sufficiency.”
Our goal is to ensure that men, women and youth who have taken the first step to break the dependency cycle by securing job interviews, are provided with language tutoring to help master basic reading, writing and math skills. We don’t stop there; we also provide business attire to help them make a successful transition into the work place….In other words:
The organization’s philosophy hinges on the belief that self-empowerment is the key to success!
