Education & Job Training
Goodwill’s mission is to change the lives of people with disabilities and other barriers to employment through the power of work, education and empowerment.
Working at Goodwill provides valuable job training and job experience. We have a rigorous training program to prepare employees for mobility whether at Goodwill or another employer. Good Partner Coaches develop a personalized plan to ensure employees are ready for the next step.
The Excel Center helps Shelby County adults 18 and older to earn a high school diploma and have more career opportunities. A diploma and career certifications and/or post-secondary education empower individuals and lifts families.
Goodwill Job Centers offer job training programs, assessments and free classes to help individuals find a job or a higher paying job. We partner with agencies to host job fairs, and our employment specialists work one-on-one with clients to develop a career plan to include skills and job training opportunities.
