Workforce Services

Employment support

It takes more than skills to get and keep a great job. Goodwill’s Workforce Services recognizes each person’s unique challenges and helps them overcome each one until the participant reaches stability. Through Goodwill NNE’s Job Connection model, each participant is paired with a career advisor and a life navigator (a social worker position), who helps them work through each barrier to success. This Goodwill-designed model has seen unprecedented success in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Goodwill Workforce Services is funded by your Goodwill purchases and financial gifts, including customers who “round up.”
