Youth Services

Building tomorrow’s workforce

Raising a child takes parents, schools, community groups and others working together to ensure he or she will succeed. Goodwill is committed to helping today’s youth become ready for what lies ahead. Through quality programs, Goodwill will help a generation of youth establish the skills, values and connections they need to become capable, independent and actively engaged members of their community.

Goodwill programs serve youth between the ages of 14 and 25 throughout the western and northern regions of CT. Although the different programs offered provide varying levels of services based on the needs of the individual, all have the same basic goal: to provide work experience and/or academic activities to enable students to be work-ready upon graduation from high school or training program.

  • School- to-Work Transition Program– Through various partnerships with area Boards of Education, Goodwill and local schools have worked together to provide work opportunities to students age 14 to 21 with disabilities. The program provides students with critical life and vocational skills needed to live independently while working in competitive employment.
