    Financial Literacy

    Financial education is critical to any person who is new to employment and it is a core
    element taught in all programs at Goodwill. Lessons include interactive activities ranging from
    basic budgeting for groceries and rent, opening and maintaining a checking account, to more
    advanced tutorials like how credit works. Goodwill collaborates with financial institutions to
    provide financial literacy to participants at partner agencies such as Veterans Affair Offices and
    Probation/Parole Offices.

     

    Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program 

    During tax season, Goodwill hosts the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) in collaboration with the Internal Revenue Service, United Way, other partner agencies and local volunteers. Working individuals and families who earn less than $55,000 a year can have their taxes prepared, resolved and submitted for free through the VITA program.


    Job Fairs

    Goodwill hosts three annual Job Fairs which are open to the public and average 200 job
    seekers and 35 employers at each fair.

    The next job fair is on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 in Corpus Christi and Edinburg.

    Resume Workshops

    Resume writing workshops are also conducted weekly at the Nueces County Jail serving
    ten inmates each week. Inmates are enrolled in the workshop right before they are eligible for
    release. Program outcome includes being able to use the resume to gain employment. Inmates
    are encouraged to contact Goodwill if they need further assistance with job placement.

    ESL Classes at Goodwill
