Bay Area, see how Goodwill Starts with You

Joanna has worked at Green Bay East Goodwill store for the past two years. She earned her associate degree in graphic design and was looking to gain experience in the field but struggled with taking the first steps.
She worked with Goodwill NCW’s Employment Navigator who serves the Green Bay area, and after overcoming several barriers, Joanna started a 12-week internship in Goodwill NCW’s marketing department.
“I always set goals for myself to prove what I wanted to achieve but within these two years of working with Goodwill, I have grown and changed as a person,” Joanna said. “Now I have high self-esteem about myself in that I can achieve and improve any goal.”
During her internship, Joanna not only practiced design, but also gained confidence, and learned how to manage her time, become a self-advocate and complete projects with a deadline.
