Career Gear is a not-for-profit social enterprise that provides services to agencies and institutions of higher learning and their clients and students in order to provide improved employment outcomes for men entering or re-entering the workforce. Our programs consist of three primary service components, a Job Readiness Program, a Guest Speaker Series and population-specific programs for the many groups and agencies with whom we engage, including a youth program for young men ages 16-24 and a Veterans program for service members re-entering the workforce.

donateNYC Partner Fact: Sinces 1999, Career Gear has helped over 35,000 men with professional attire and workforce development training.
