If you are 55 years of age or older and are unemployed or meet income guidelines, Goodwill® can help by enhancing
your work skills. Let Goodwill link you with a local nonprofit or other community service agency where you’ll: get paid to
learn new skills through on-the-job training, learn current job searching techniques, develop effective interview skills
and build work experience and confidence to advance to regular employment.

When you contact Goodwill about training, here’s what you can expect: an initial assessment to determine if you meet
program criteria, an evaluation of your skills and interests, assignment to a local nonprofit or government agency, paid
on-the-job training, typically 20 hours per week and job-seeking and support services to help you find a permanent job.

Goodwill will help you determine the income criteria. Please note that priority is given to individuals over 65 and
to veterans and their spouses.
