Job Training

Job Training Creates a Brighter Future

Our program participants’ stories are as varied as their individual backgrounds but the common thread is that they each have obstacles that hold them back from getting a job and creating a better life.

Goodwill’s mission is to help our program participants either learn new skills so they can remove their barriers to employment or address the barrier and find ways to support the participant to find employment with that barrier, or both.

Goodwill is an accredited educational institution by the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board of Washington State and consistently receives the highest endorsement from the National Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission (CARF) for our job training skills.

Goodwill helps people with barriers to employment go to work by providing the job training and support services of over 30 programs, all designed to give job seekers the skills and confidence to land and keep a job.
