The success of Goodwill’s mission to transform lives through the power of education and employment is rooted in the trust and support from our community, financial investors, used-goods donors, retail shoppers, students, and associates.
In 2014, Goodwill’s goals will be focused on helping the most disadvantaged people in our community find and keep employment and we need your help. Let’s Get to Work!
Jobs in 2014 Goals
Make a financial investment, donate your gently used goods, and volunteer with Goodwill this year, and help local people facing unemployment or underemployment, and people with disabilities achieve the following:
A Meaningful Career
185 individuals will achieve meaningful employment in the community through our sector-specific (hospitality and security and protective services) and general workforce development programs.
Our goal is to dramatically impact job retention for the people Goodwill places into employment so that their new careers become permanent.
RISE Career Coaching
Those who achieve employment at one of Goodwill’s 15 stores will have access to ongoing coaching and resources to help them advance in their careers, including: professional development, child care, housing, and food assistance.
All students enrolled in programs can earn $10 daily travel stipends through good class attendance.
Together we can combat the biggest barrier to achieving independence—education and employment. We look forward to partnering with you to transform lives and communities this year.
