Goodwill ~ Redwood Empire plans next cohort of Good4Youth Program

SANTA ROSA, Calif. — Goodwill ~ Redwood Empire is proud to announce that Cohort 3 of our Good4Youth Program will begin in late May.

This program is offered at no cost to youth aged 15 to 20 who are interested in joining the workforce.

Good4Youth is a five-week program that prepares learners with the necessary skills to enter the workforce.

This program is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m. and gives learners the chance to gain skills in career exploration, resume building, acing an interview, employer expectations, interpersonal skills, and social media etiquette.

Upon completion of the course, learners will receive a Work Readiness for Youth certification and the opportunity to participate in a three-month paid internship at Goodwill.

This paid internship will allow participants to gain work readiness skills on the job and add great experience to a resume.

One parent of a recent learner shared their experience with Good4Youth saying, “Our son has grown in many ways as a result of the Good4Youth program. He gained confidence and strengthened his social interaction skills. He has recognized that he can be successful … it has been a priceless experience for our family.”

Goodwill ~ Redwood Empire is excited to give youth the opportunity to gain skills to succeed in the workforce. Those interested can apply by visiting visit
