Become a Goodwill Ambassador
Goodwill Ambassadors make a commitment to share the mission of Goodwill Manasota, Inc. We provide the training and education, and our Ambassadors let the community know about the improvements Goodwill is making in the quality of so many lives, the paths to self-sufficiency Goodwill is creating and enumerate the opportunities to support this Goodwill.
Our Ambassadors routinely speak with service clubs, faith-based organizations, professional and youth groups, etc., to let them know about Goodwill's mission – thus building awareness of the organization through their public engagements. There are many opportunities for public speaking, as well as one-on-one engagements, to illustrate the documented creation of jobs and a far more employable workforce in our community.
Good Neighbor Programs
With dozens of Goodwill locations throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties, most of us can easily locate our neighborhood Goodwill. Our most recent locations are designed with community rooms and additional community services. Good Neighbor Connection provides human-service programs designed to meet the specific needs and interests of the local neighbors and families - often through strategic alliances between Goodwill, community volunteer groups and other organizations. We offer information and referral services to neighbors who are seeking assistance.
Goodwill Manasota also offers opportunities for communities around our locations to come together. We offer numerous FREE classes ranging from beginner Spanish, learning computers, arts & crafts, cooking and more.
We are always looking for people to donate their time to teach a class, or just come as an attendee and meet your neighbors!
