Goodwill: A bridge to employment
Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin
Each year, nonprofit Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin breaks the cycle of poverty for thousands of local people through our transformative free training and work placement programs. Goodwill serves anyone who comes through our doors with a willingness to work. We focus on people who have been out of work for a long time due to:
- job displacement
- single parenting
- age (youth and seniors)
- low education/skills
- language challenges
- military service
From skills training to job coaching that leads to employment, we identify and develop job-readiness skills on both a personal and professional level, plus offer a variety of employment support services.
Employment at Goodwill – Our 19 retail stores, 25 attended donation centers and 2 warehouses employ more than 600 people and provide training and employment opportunities for individuals seeking to learn and build work skills that lead to career pathways.
Employment with Top Bay Area Companies – Our experienced employment coaches connect work ready job seekers with open positions at a range of companies throughout San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.
Last year, Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin placed our participants in 636 jobs and transitional employment opportunities. In addition, education, job training and employment services were provided to 3,200 people in our three-county region, and 10,300 visits were made to our Comprehensive Access Point Job Center.
