Goodwill has volunteer opportunities for community members.
Amblyopia Screening Program
Our volunteers screen preschool children in Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana
counties for amblyopia, commonly known as “lazy eye.” Volunteers are trained by the Ohio Department of Health and use VIP Screening Kits to screen children in daycares and schools.
Youngstown Radio Reading Service (YRRS) is a private, non-profit station broadcasting readings of local newspapers, magazines, best-selling books along with presenting talk shows and special interest programs to people experiencing visual impairment across Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

The Junior Group is active through employee engagement and visits team members at the plant monthly for coffee and donuts.
