Workforce Connection Centers

Goodwill Workforce Connection Centers are valuable community resources that provide convenient access, tools and technology, and support to those looking for work. A large range of work opportunities are promoted to help connect job seekers to positions that meet their unique employment needs. The revenue generated from sales of donations in our Goodwill Store & Donation Centers help fund these services.

The Centers bridge the gap between the job seeker and local companies. We provide an array of services, including resume assistance, job preparation workshops, access to computers and other technology, job leads and a regular schedule of employer recruitment sessions. Services are provided at no charge to our customers.

Beginning January 2017, anyone 16 years of age or older can use the Center services to find work.
