Make a real difference: Live the Good Give and Transform a Life!
Live the Good Give! When you donate to Good Give, you’re helping thousands of Central Texans get the education and career-advancement training they need that ultimately leads to a successful career.
From one dollar to hundreds of dollars, every donation writes the beginning of another lasting success story—just like Albert’s!
Albert spent much of his childhood bouncing between family members and foster care. This lack of stability meant school wasn’t a priority; he got into trouble and was eventually arrested. Albert attributes his referral to Goodwill to earn his GED marking a turning point in his life. While he completed his GED, he worked with his Goodwill Career Case Manager to sharpen his soft skills and get job-ready. Soon, Albert was hired at Samsung as an intern. They were so impressed, they hired him on full time.
Three years later, Albert was transferred into the Facilities Electrical Department: the beginning of his dream to become an electrician. He works full time while also attending college full time to get his Journeyman’s License, studying under a Master Electrician. Samsung is so committed to his success that they are funding his college education!
“Goodwill gave me the tools and the chance I needed,” says Albert. “It was up to me to advance myself into what I’ve become, and now I’m on the path for my dream career.”
