Mission Moment: Meet Alvin

By | Goodwill News, Success Stories, Workforce Development

Congratulations Alvin! Alvin came to the Goodwill Job Connection Center (JCC) on last year with aspirations to change his career and learn new skills.  Alvin interviewed for a position with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), as part of its collaboration with Goodwill.  He was hired and was preparing to work in transportation. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic prevented the start of the project. The good news is, the project resumed this summer and Alvin has been able to work on the project. He drives trucks and heavy machinery on the I-75 Project and at the Bowling Green ODOT office. He has secured his Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and other transportation certificates, through ODOT in order to enhance his opportunities. We want to congratulate Alvin and encourage him to continue the great work.
