Take the wheel of your future! Transportation is one of the key barriers to employment in North Central Pennsylvania. Limited public transportation within our rural communities prevents many individuals from finding and keeping jobs. Goodwill’s Driver Training School guides individuals through the entire process of obtaining a driver’s license. From classroom permit training to behind the wheel instruction, they learn how to safely operate a vehicle and obtain their driver’s license.
The “Seeding Success” Goodwill Greenhouse Program is a small business training program that teaches individuals how to run a small agricultural business from seed to sale. The program included 1 large greenhouse, 1 hoop house and 2 gardens. Participants plant the seeds in biodegradable cups, transplant them and take care of them until they are ready for sale. The greenhouse program has also started making and decorating unique planters. The program grows every year and the hope is to have it up and running all year.
