Goodwill’s mission is to “enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by helping people reach their full potential through education, skills training and the power of work” (Goodwill Industries International). Goodwill achieves this by providing training and support services for people who need them. They have assisted people with training in industries such as banking, IT and even health care. Goodwill also provides services for people who need help learning the English language, who need additional education, and even for people who need access to transportation and child care. Goodwill strongly believes in enhancing the quality of life for “individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work” (Goodwill Industries International).
