Many people know Goodwill for its stores. But what a lot of people don’t know is that Goodwill offers a variety of programs and services to the community. The money we make from selling donated goods funds job training courses, employment services, job search support, family stability services and more – all of which we offer free of charge to thousands of people in our community each year.
Job Training Courses
Goodwill offers a wide variety of free job training courses through its training division, Goodwill University. These job training courses in IT, construction, customer service and more are designed to help people in our community develop the skills they need to launch their career, and they are all offered free of charge, thanks to the community’s donations and purchases.
When you visit a Goodwill Career Center, you’re treated as more than just a number. You’re a person with unique skills, interests and desires. Our Career Centers offer computer access, resume review, job search support, course enrollment, family stability services, the opportunity to meet with a career navigator and more! Each Career Center is equipped with knowledgeable staff who can assist you as you work to launch your next career.
Goodwill partners with other organizations to provide additional services to people in our community. Even though our mission is centered on helping people find employment and launch meaningful careers, we understand that people won’t succeed in doing so if they’re lacking support in other aspects of their lives.
