Youth Programs at Goodwill

Here is the latest notice from the eligibility specialist about Goodwill Youth Programs in Austin:

Good Afternoon, Everyone,

We are halfway through summer and it’s time for August orientations for the Goodwill WIA Youth program! We serve 14-21 year-olds in Travis county who need their GED and/or Job Readiness Training, internships, and paid certification trainings.  Don’t forget—this program is NOT for youth who are currently enrolled in high/middle school who are looking for summer employment.

We are pleased to add a sixth monthly orientation at the Goodwill Careers Academy on East 6th and Chicon. They will be ongoing and we hope to increase our impact on the East side.

I’d like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like a “refresher” on what our program can do for the youth you work with; we are doing quite a bit of outreach and would love to do a small presentation for yourself or your staff. Let me know if you’re interested and we will get something set up—don’t be shy!

Thanks for your continued support of WIA Youth and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
