Tiffany came to Goodwill through our partnership with OhioMeansJobs. She is a participant in the Morrow County Youth Program.
This program helps youth (ages 14-24) prepare for and find meaningful employment. Before coming to Goodwill for services, the youth complete a comprehensive assessment with OhioMeansJobs – Morrow County. The assessment evaluates skills, interests, strengths and assists with career exploration. Depending on needs, the participants have access to work experience, tutoring, training, supportive services, counseling and leadership activities.
Through the program, Tiffany was placed at the Mt. Gilead Public Library. During the summer session of the program, she was able to take the lead in the library’s Summer Reading Program and help Morrow County youth explore the library and gain a love for reading.
She was also able to take a driver’s education class through the program and get her driver’s license, which eliminated a barrier to employment.
Tiffany is gaining valuable work experience through her placement at the library that will contribute to her future career plans of becoming an elementary school teacher.
