Goodwill Workforce Development

Recognizing that the best way to prepare someone for a self-sufficient lifestyle is to provide real-world work experience, Youngstown Area Goodwill Programs provides job training through its retail stores and processing plant with the option to prepare in our simulation sites.

Our professional staff trains productive and highly motivated workers. After completing Goodwill’s programs, further training may take place in community-based vocational settings. Ultimately, competitive employment in the community is the goal. Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries offers a variety of programs in pursuit of this goal, including:

• Vocational Evaluation

• Social Services

• Job Readiness

• Work Adjustment

• Job Development and Job Placement

• Work Experience

• Job Coaching
