The Mission


Special Events

Speakers’ Bureau Goodwill Industries for Northwest Ohio

Do you wonder how “jeans are turned into jobs?” We can help! Our Speakers’ Bureau is a free resource for church groups, chambers of commerce, schools, senior centers, civic groups, service organizations, professional associations, or businesses. Learn about the different programs Goodwill offers from staff and board members who can speak from experience. We hope to help our community learn more about the issues related to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment and they can achieve more independent lives.
