New Bridge To Technology pilot program will prepare New Yorkers for advanced technology training programs
Goodwill NYNJ has received a $100,000 grant from the Pinkerton Foundation to upskill 40 individuals per year who have gained security jobs through our Career Services Youth Pathways program (YouthPathways) and are looking to advance their careers. Thanks to this grant, Goodwill NYNJ will provide on-site training and exam preparation so they can obtain advanced certifications and higher wages. This new program launched on Nov. 1, 2020.
