Evergreen Goodwill offers free Job Training and Education (JTE) programs to people in the community, including adult basic education classes and workshops, which focus on preparing adults for today’s workplace, as well as career exploration. Evergreen Goodwill also offers support services to students, connecting them to things like housing and food assistance to remove barriers in their job training. In addition, hybrid and online courses are now available through Evergreen Goodwill’s JTE Programs, expanding the organization’s reach to help even more people across Northwest Washington.
Addressing the growing need for highly functional hybrid educational and professional environments, a significant portion of the new technology enhancements include upgraded and advanced audio-visual technology to improve video conferencing capabilities in the classroom.
“We are excited to unveil yet another chapter in our efforts to bridge the digital divide by enhancing digital equity in Bellingham and communities across Whatcom County,” said Eileen Aparis, vice president of Mission at Evergreen Goodwill. “The Comcast Lift Zone at our Whatcom County Job Training and Education Center is another example of our meaningful and long-standing partnership with Comcast. The company has invested more than $700,000 to support job seekers receive vital resources, access, and skills needed to be successful and not get left behind in our digital world.”
