The Journey Begins...
We want to provide young men ages 18-26 with the spark they need in order to get serious about life. My 1st Suit believes in the power of exposure to positive people places and things. The program was created to bring those who have resources together with those who need opportunities to see life from a different perspective. It only takes one bad experience to derail a person. In the same regard, it only take one good experience to change someone's life forever.
Do you know him? Have you met him If so, chances are he will benefit from our program. All we need from him is to submit an essay one page or less telling us why he would like to be a part of this program and how having his own suit would have a major impact on his life.
About My 1st Suit
My 1st Suit was founded on a straight forward principle - to change the lives of young men. The overall mission of My 1st Suit is to create awareness about young adults' self-esteem and how it contributes to their daily lives. A huge part of the focus is young men ages 18-26 who live in disadvantaged socio-economic areas. My 1st Suit will partner with men's clothing companies and boutiques in order to outfit 15 young men annually in their first suit. All of the young men in the program will participate in a five-weekend intensive that will include courses on sharpening business skills and character building.
