Last week’s Dress for Success event with Nnamdi Asomugha was a huge success for MatchBridge and the young people that attended. You can read about the event on sfgate’s Get to Work blog as well. At the event, 47 Bay Area youth received professional clothing and accessories, as well as job interview training. This event was focused San Francisco youth, but there are resources available to help youth in other counties as well.
