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.
