Success Stories

Mission: Youth

Like many teenage boys, Daniel Allen is passionate about cars. And he’s not shy to tell you which one is his favorite.

“The Toyota Supra,” said Allen, without hesitation. “That’s the best. I also like a lot of the Nissans.”

Daniel is part of Goodwill’s Youth Initiative, which offers programs to help young people in undeserved communities succeed in school and plan for the future. There is an After-School Academy, the GoodGuides youth mentoring program, and a number of academic, recreational, and career-oriented activities.

Daniel also worked in The Goodwill Store in South Boston over the summer as a sales associate, gaining valuable work experience and earning a pay check. He was sad to go when school started, but loved his time there.

At Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, Daniel participates in many of the Youth Initiative activities and also stays after school several times a week for the After-School Academy. The program provides the help he needs.

“I can get my homework done,” he said. “I don’t have time if I don’t come here."
