The University of Texas at Tyler Students in Free Enterprise is partnering again with the East Texas Crisis Center to give female clients the job skills and the confidence they need for a better future.
Formally known as Dress for Success, the Rising Phoenix Project allows female SIFE members the opportunity to directly work with crisis center clients as personal advocates.
Students teach women important job skills including resume writing, elevator speech techniques and proper interview attire.
The project, which began last fall, was the brainchild of SIFE treasurer and senior accounting major KeeKee Miller of Tyler.
UT Tyler SIFE is dedicated to improving the lives of students and their community by engaging in projects focused on market economics, success skills, entrepreneurship, business ethics, environmental sustainability and financial literacy.
