Goodwill Offers Paid Training for YouthsJuly 4, 2011, Johnstown Tribune-Democrat
Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies is recruiting youth ages 17–24 to fill 10 openings for its paid training program that begins July 18.
Through YouthBuild Johnstown, youth in Cambria and Somerset counties can earn their GEDs and receive on-the-job-training in a construction trade while earning minimum wage as they build or rehabilitate low-income housing in our region. Interested applicants must call by Friday to learn if they meet eligibility requirements.
Since Goodwill began operating YouthBuild in October 2007, the program has provided participants with more than 25,000 hours of on-the-job training, enabled them to perform more than 1,500 hours of community service, has facilitated participants’ enrollment in community college, and has assisted them in obtaining employment in the construction and service industry.
Interested applicants should contact Mindy Rickabaugh at 242-1375 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
