Palmetto Goodwill Partnering with R. B. Stall High School for Workforce Development Program

September 18, 2015 – North Charleston, SC – Palmetto Goodwill has partnered with R. B. Stall High School to offer over a dozen students the opportunity to work and go to school at the same time!

The program, dubbed Workforce Academy, began this summer with a job skills training course.

When school started, the students in the Workforce Academy program began working every other day at the Goodwill facility on Rivers Avenue. They each work about 20 hours a week, and on the days the are not working, they are completing their core high school course.

Thanks to this program, these students have the opportunity to earn a paycheck while they are completing their diploma requirements.

Special thanks to everyone at Palmetto Goodwill for welcoming these students on to their team, and to the extraordinary faculty at R. B. Stall HS for ensuring an innovative program like this can become a reality for the students.
