Have you heard about Disability Mentoring Day? Well, if not, now you have! Landing on Wednesday, October 19th this year, the day is an opportunity for people with disabilities to find out first-hand about the skills and education needed to succeed in a 21st century workplace.

We have big plans for the Disability Mentoring Day itself, but in the meantime, we’ve been organizing seminars for people with disabilities before the day begins. Last week our own Martha Jackson, Goodwill’s Director – Marketing and VIP Career Services, organized a customer service seminar for potential participants of Disability Mentoring Day.

Over 60 students and job-seekers attended the Disability Mentoring Day + GoodwillNyNj seminar, all looking to explore work opportunities in the Customer Service sector for individuals with disabilities.

More than 60 students and other job-seekers with disabilities attended the event. The goal of the seminar was to explore potential work opportunities in the Customer Service sector for individuals with disabilities.

It’s your support that makes seminars like these possible – extending a hand-up to individuals often overlooked and making our communities stronger. Thank you for shopping and donating Goodwill!
