Goodwill GoodGuides are Recruiting for Summer Program and Next School Year

(SAVANNAH) On Thursday, May 14 Goodwill GoodGuides will be holding a recruitment event at Hubert Middle School at 1:30 PM for both mentors and mentees interested in guiding the youth in the community. This recruitment event will provide interactive games for the youth and potential mentors to enjoy.

GoodGuides seeks creative opportunities for our mentees to not only have fun, but to learn important lessons and skills that will better them as a person now and in the future as well. Games 2 U will provide laser tag, a game bus, and other interactive games for the current mentees to enjoy as a reward to for reaching their goal this year. They see fun, but GoodGuides realizes these games help to provide team building, leadership, cardio, hand-eye coordination, among other skills are being exercised while they have fun. This is the exact intent of our GoodGuides Mentoring Program!

With funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Goodwill of the Coastal Empire is serving youth, ages 12 to 17, who want to learn about careers and prepare for success. The Goodwill GoodGuides program pairs teens with mentors who help them build career plans and skills and prepare for school completion, post-secondary training and productive work. This will provide for additional training and mentor support, advocacy and teaching roles for mentors, expanded parent engagement and more structured activities at 22 Goodwill agencies around the United States.

Goodwill’s Youth Services include youth education, youth employment, and youth engagement to provide the services, opportunities, and supports youth need to succeed. Goodwill emphasizes positive youth development to ensure our young people have psychological and physical safety, supportive relationships, and positive social norms as they transition into adulthood.

CARF Recertification


The Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International (CARF), recently reaccredited Goodwill of the Coastal Empire for its Community Employment Services, including Employment Supports and Job Development, Organizational Employment and Comprehensive Vocational Evaluation. The three-year accreditation awarded to Goodwill of the Coastal Empire is the highest mark of excellence offered by CARF, and is the 10th time Goodwill of the Coastal Empire has earned a three-year seal.

CARF accreditation is considered the hallmark of excellence for rehabilitation organizations throughout North America and other parts of the world. The widely-respected credential attests to a service provider’s commitment to continuous improvement of services, encourages consumer input in finding evidenced-based strategies to serve the community better. Accreditation guides service providers in best practices, thereby improving the quality of services and meeting internationally-recognized quality standards. Consumers, their families, and the public look for CARF accreditation as assurance that providers strive to offer the highest quality services.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Goodwill demonstrates that it meets the rigid international quality standards and is committed to pursuing excellence in providing quality services to persons with disabilities. An organization receiving a three-year accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality.

Goodwill of the Coastal Empire is a not for profit organization celebrating nearly 50 years of providing a full array of community employment and job search and placement programs for people with disabilities and barriers to employment in 33 counties of the Coastal Empire.
