Suits

Achievement Meets Attire

Driven helps people without access to professional resources get a job by providing suits. We have programs for both students and criminally involved men and women. If you’d like to help, you can donate a gently used suit or sponsor a new suit. 

Suits for Students

SUITS is tailored to promote and reward academic achievement, school involvement, and overall citizenship. Select Columbus, Ohio high school senior students will receive a suit to help assist them on college, job, and internship interviews.

Students must adhere to the following criteria to eligible to receive a suit:

  • Maintain at least a 2.75 GPA during their senior academic year
  • Participate in at least (1) extracurricular activity or school club
  • On target to graduate with senior class

Suits for Justice-Involved Individuals

SUITS is also partnered with Just Corrections to help support their mission serving people coming out of the American criminal justice system by connecting re-entering men with critically important local resources including SUITS and attire for job interviews.

Sponsor or Donate a Suit
