The Career Closet is a project of Emerging Leaders that serves people in need of clothing for interviews or employment. Individuals may receive up to two outfits at no cost to help them obtain a job or to start their new work wardrobe. All items are donated and the project is entirely volunteer-run.

Steel-toed boots for new employment are available from the Career Closet through the Boots to Work program. Proof of employment with a need for steel-toed footwear and a completed voucher signed by a staff member of a referring agency is needed to receive one pair of new or gently used steel-toed boots.
