Career Path Program: “Bring Your A Game to Work”

By community, Goodwill News, Grants, Mission Services, Workforce Development

Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio, Inc. recently had its Career Path Program renewed by Lucas County Job & Family Services for another year.  This program provides job development services to individuals that qualify for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF). 

Part of the process involves participants receiving character development training to provide them with the skills to have successful work careers.  Twice each month, the participants have a training session where they receive a class taught by Tisha Carroll and her team, a curriculum entitled “Bring Your A Game To Work”.  The participants receive instruction on the “7 values that will make every employer want to hire them and fight to keep them.”

The classes are a prerequisite to moving forward in the Career Path Program.  The participants have open discussion on such topics as Attitude, Attendance, Appearance, Ambition, Accountability, Acceptance and Appreciation.  The participants openly discuss the topics and learn the importance of each topic and the practical application at work.  The classes have been extremely popular and successful.  Good training team Goodwill!

2022 Pass It On Challenge Results

By community, Goodwill News

A total of 163,260 pounds of donations were donated and $7,500 in scholarships were given to the schools in the 2022 season. Three schools joined the program this year and 2 more schools participated that haven’t been involved in a few years. The proceeds from these donations help fund job training and job placement for individuals with barriers to employment

Two schools, Clay Eagles and Swanton Bulldogs, broke their own weight records this year!  Clay filled up two semi-trailers, top to bottom and we had to send an extra truck to Swanton to pick up what was left over that couldn’t fit in the trailer! 

There will be an awards reception at 13abc studios in November to present the school’s with their scholarship checks and certificates.

If you would like your high school to participate in next years program, call 419-255-0070 Ext. 3202.
