I will aspire: Goodwill's job training, career services, and youth programs help people achieve independence.
Goodwill's Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees makes available business clothing to male and female job seekers who participate in Boston-based job training and placement programs to assist them in their efforts to obtain and retain meaningful employment. Clothing is provided free of charge.
Offered quarterly at Goodwill headquarters, 1010 Harrison Avenue, Boston, each Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees program includes a wardrobe seminar to reinforce the basics of dressing appropriately for work, prior to the selection of career attire among racks and racks of clothing and tables filled with accessories.
A significant quantity of the work-appropriate clothing offered at the Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees is supplied through Goodwill's annual Put Your Clothes to Work clothing drives hosted by local corporations and organizations throughout the year.
More than 15 job training programs in the Boston area participate in the Clothing Collaborative for Job Trainees.
For more information, please call (617) 541-1241.
The Goodwill Stores are run as social enterprises, meaning they support Goodwill’s mission to provide job training for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment while also providing jobs and good quality, low-cost goods to individuals and families looking for value.
