In addition to high quality instruction in classes and workshops, Seattle Goodwill offers support services to provide a wrap around, holistic approach to serving the community. To be eligible for these services, students must be enrolled in a class and must be in good standing. Students can work with a Case Manager to address barriers standing in the way of their success in class and finding or maintaining employment. These barriers may include a need for assistance with food, housing, healthcare, transportation, utilities, legal or immigration related questions, domestic violence, and many other challenges. Case managers work directly with instructors and staff to best serve the needs of the students. They also partner with organizations in the community to provide resources to students.
Employment Specialists work with students to become work ready, prepare for and successfully job search, and ultimately to become employed. For students who require personalized assistance, they provide one-on-one help with resumes, online job searching, application assistance, and interview preparation.
