It’s the work that adds dignity to our lives, builds hope for our futures, and strengthens our communities. It is getting you to work that is the mission of Goodwill.
Through our array of career development services individuals are better prepared to find the job that will help change their lives. That is the power of work and this is the work of Goodwill.
Whether you have a strong work history, are new to the job market, are re-entering the workforce, or require additional training and support Goodwill can help you get to work.
Goodwill provides a variety of programs and specialized services that assess and identify an individual’s abilities, job readiness skills and training needs, while offering individual assistance from Goodwill team members. Participation is based on referrals from partner agencies, such as Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency and the Veterans Administration. These programs are designed for those who desire employment and would benefit from additional skills to be successful on the job
Goodwill is enhancing its successful national youth mentoring program in an effort to assist more youth in high-risk situations to make better life choices. At this critical moment, with high youth unemployment discouraging many teens, young people need positive role models who show them that they can indeed succeed. Goodwill GoodGuides® is made possible through a $9 million three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. This will provide for additional training and mentor support, advocacy and teaching roles for mentors, expanded parent engagement and more structured activities at 22 Goodwill agencies around the United States.
