As you get older, you gain valuable experience that employers value—but you also need to learn new skills to stay competitive.
Goodwill is here to help you find work, develop your skills and talents, maintain or establish financial security and access affordable housing and health care. We can help you prepare for an “encore” career if you’ve left a long-time line of work by providing computer training, financial coaching and assistance with finding jobs online.
We also offer comprehensive services for people 55 and older in nine states through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). The program, funded through the U.S. Department of Labor, provides paid training at locations like libraries, schools, housing agencies, food banks and other nonprofits. The program will help you:
- Gain valuable workplace skills and expertise.
- Build self-confidence.
- Create career planning.
- Develop technology skills.
- Obtain job readiness skills.
Goodwill currently offers SCSEP-related services in New Mexico, South Carolina, Missouri and Kentucky; large portions of Washington, Indiana, Ohio and Virginia; and in several southeast counties in Illinois.
