Workshop Curriculum

Since opening our doors in 1999, Bottomless Closet has offered educational workshops to address the challenges associated with searching for employment, entering the workforce and balancing the demands of work and home. Bottomless Closet offers educational programming that is grouped into three areas: Professional Development, Financial Management and Personal Enrichment. The Professional Development and Financial Management Series incorporate a series of Core Workshops, together with a variety of Electives, offered throughout the year. As an added incentive, we offer Professional Development and Financial Management Certificates for those clients who complete a series of specific workshops. Please note: clients are encouraged to participate in as many of the workshops that are of interest to them, and are in no way required to pursue a certificate. The certificates serve to enhance clients’ resumes. For more information on the Professional Development or Financial Management Certificate program please contact Pam Kulnis, Program Director at 212.563.2499 ext. 11 or at
