Blue Jacket Clothing Co M-F:10-5 Sat:10-4
Blue Jacket expanded its mission to serve anyone considered to be a disadvantaged candidate to employment. This was accomplished by partnering with local agencies to help those emerging from poverty, homelessness, or situational circumstances that required a more intensive approach to employment so that employers could find these individuals trustworthy.
Serving the hardest-of-the-hardest to employ has been our specialty, and we serve anyone wanting a second chance at employment, regardless of criminal background.
The Career Academy is a two-week, 40-hour training program in which Blue Jacket provides job-readiness training, transitional jobs, job placement, and pre- and post-placement services including education, skills and interest assessments, and personal and professional development.
Blue Jacket Staffing assists in the placement of the clients that attend the Career Academy and operates as a full-service staffing, also designated as a social enterprise.
The Blue Jacket Clothing Co. is another social enterprise providing high quality professional and casual clothing at thrift prices so that Blue Jacket can provide free interview clothing to its clients, hire clients, and train clients.
Four fundraisers help fund the Career Academy; the 2nd Chance Art Exhibit, Golf Outing, Fort4Fitness runs, and the annual family holiday tradition, the Fantasy of Lights.
South of Downtown Fort Wayne just 5 minutes on South Calhoun Street.
