If you would like to learn about some of the youth whose lives have been impacted by Goodwill services, check out three of our stories on our Youth News page.
A: All “Give Goodwill” donations made between October 22- December 10 will support Goodwill’s services to youth.
A: The following Goodwill services to youth focus on helping them become successful and independent through education and employment:
GoodGuides is a mentoring program for youth ages 12 to 17 who are at risk of not completing high school. Volunteer mentors and youth meet weekly in small groups. Mentors and youth tour local businesses, job fairs, and college campuses as well as participate in general career awareness activities and set goals for future education and career plans.
Work experience/school transition services provide young people with disabilities job experiences that will help them make the transition from school to work.
Goodwill supports staff in some communities who work in partnership with other organizations to provide work experience, job placement and support services that help young people ages 16-24 build a resume, achieve educational goals, and become employable.

A: Our customers were wonderfully generous in their support of our regions veterans who are homeless and struggling to maintain employment, family connections, housing, and health. Their change, donated over an 8 week period between October 17 and December 12, raised over $40,000 to support Goodwill's services for Veterans and their families. Some donors gave a penny, some gave a few dollars, and one generous donor even anonymously donated over $200.00. Thank you for your caring and support for those who have served our country so well.
