I will work: Goodwill's job training, career services, and youth programs help people achieve independence.
For more a century, Goodwill has been a leading Massachusetts provider of job training, career development, and youth programs that help equip individuals with the tools necessary to sharpen their skills, meet new challenges, and create more rewarding and independent lives.
Job Training and Placement Services, both short- and long-term, help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to self-sufficiency to develop the skills to take advantage of opportunities in the job market and meet the workforce needs of a range of employers. Career Services in Boston Career Link, the one-stop career center operated by Goodwill, gives job seekers – individuals who are looking to advance or change careers – universal access to a broad range of career services. The career center also offers employers good candidates for their job openings. In addition, Goodwill offers Youth Programs for young people with great potential but limited opportunities through a range of academic, recreational and career-oriented programs.
Each year, thousands of individuals participate in Goodwill programs, and hundreds of businesses and other organizations partner with Goodwill to help ensure that everyone who enrolls in a Goodwill program gets the best chance for achieving their goals and being successful.
Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries collaborates with hundreds of employers to promote and facilitate the hiring of individuals facing barriers to employment. These collaborations bring trained, dedicated employees to the workforce, and help people achieve independence and dignity.
