Goodwill’s Begin@Home model is comprised of programs that support on-the-job paid training. Clients often come to Goodwill in need of an immediate pay check and don’t have the resources to take free development classes available. The need to earn income while learning often traps people in a cycle of low-paying jobs and makes it difficult to advance to a higher income.
Goodwills of Central and Coastal Virginia’s new model provides a solution to client’s immediate needs (income) while also providing structured opportunities to progress within or beyond our organization.
Trainings include, but are not limited to:
- Welcome Home
Goodwill’s ultimate goal is to help job seekers in our community gain sustainable employment that uplifts them and their families, allowing them to earn while they learn.
