Vocational Services

SNAP Training & Employment
Program (STEP)

Goodwill’s Job Connections began providing STEP services in October 2014 within the Job Connections environment. Through the STEP program, Goodwill has been able to expand and enhance services to STEP participants primarily through additional staffing, services and support funds such as transportation and identification assistance. Services include job search, job search training, work experience, vocational training options, retention, and support services while individuals are looking for work and to help them be successful once they have found a job. Individuals develop a plan for success with an employment specialist to help them with their employment needs from finding a job to keeping a job or getting a better job.

Employment and Training Services

Employment and Training Services (ETS) helps people with developmental disabilities earn wages in an integrated and productive environment.

At Goodwill, our mission is to provide vocational opportunities to individuals with barriers to employment. When individuals donate to Goodwill or buy from our stores, individuals will likely meet some of the people who have found independence, dignity and strength through our mission.

Retail Integrated Employment

Many of our Employment and Training participants are eager to learn retail operations work at one of our Goodwill Retail Training Centers. These employees can learn and work at a variety of jobs, including dressing room attendant, stocker, pricer, sorter and donation attendant. 

Supported Work Program

Goodwill provides supported work experience opportunities to individuals receiving TANF. Our Employment Specialists provide an initial evaluation to identify and/or establish positive work habits and dependability. Individuals are then provided opportunities for additional work experience at a Goodwill location. Some participants can receive up to six months of paid on-the-job training. This program is a partnership with the Lane Workforce Partnership (LWP) and the Oregon Department of Human Services. Please call 541-431-3309 and ask for one of our Employment Specialists to learn how you can be referred to Goodwill.

Vocational Rehabilitation

Goodwill assists individuals with diagnosed disabilities attain and retain jobs in the community. Our services include workplace assessments and individual job search assistance. These services are offered in partnership with Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation Services, the Veterans Administration, the Oregon Commission for the Blind and other referring agencies. Please call 541-431-3309 and ask for our Vocational Services program and learn how you can be referred to Goodwill.
