Program will prepare as many as 600 Washington, DC residents for hospitality careers
Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, announced the launch of the Washington Marriott Marquis Jobs Training Program in collaboration with Goodwill of Greater Washington and a coalition of community-based organizations. This jobs-training initiative will prepare and train up to 600 District residents for jobs with the new Washington Marriott Marquis, scheduled to open in May 2014.
At the beginning of September Goodwill of Greater Washington will open its newest retail store and donation center in Dale City, VA. Located in the Ashdale Plaza shopping center just off of I-95 and only a short drive from Potomac Mills Mall, the facility will be DC Goodwill’s 15th store.
The donation center is already open for donations and will be operating from 8:30am - 5:30pm daily.
At 25,000 square feet, it will match the size of Goodwill’s largest store in Annandale Plaza and will also include a career center while creating up to 35 new jobs.
