Goodwill Industries of Santa Clara County
GWSV provides assistance for individuals with barriers to employment and other life challenges including homeless veterans, veteran families, people in the criminal justice system, foster youth, at risk youth, people with developmental disabilities and individuals looking to improve their employment skills.
We offer a range of programs including employment services, computer training GED classes, employment workshops, housing assistance, vocational training, credit recovery, and paid work experience
GWSV strives to hire all members of our community, including young adults that live within the autism spectrum. We want to focus on the special abilities of these extraordinary individuals. Goodwill of Silicon Valley offers three to six months of paid work experience with counseling services as prescribed in each individual’s plan. After completion of the program job placement is provided through our non-profit partner Expandability.
