We’d like to extend a very big “thank you” to Ally Financial for donating more than $50,000 to provide paid work experience and internships for more than 20 construction and technology participants to gain practical experience in their career fields!
“Ally’s proud to work with Goodwill to provide opportunities for economic mobility through job training and skill-building programs. At Ally, we believe that everyone deserves a path to financial stability,” said Natalie J. Brown, director of corporate citizenship at Ally Financial.
Paid work experience and internships offered at the end of Goodwill courses will help participants practically apply their learnings on job sites and in the workplace, provide opportunities to develop transferrable skills, explore specific areas of the construction or IT industry, broaden their network to increase social capital and increase employability.
These opportunities will equip adult learners with fundamental industry skills that will increase their ability to secure family-sustaining employment.
Special thanks to Ally for investing in Goodwill’s mission and helping launch careers for so many people!
