In September of 2008, Patrick came to Goodwill seeking assistance from our vocational program. Patrick was a very shy young man who indicated an interest in graphic arts and media. As a portion of Goodwill’s service program, a Graphic Arts curriculum was developed for Patrick and another participant that included Adobe Photoshop, Flash, and other graphic design software. Additionally, Patrick traveled to a local television station, where he learned to operate the cameras, the control panel, and to perform video edits. As he progressed through Goodwill’s Graphic Arts/Vocational Program, Patrick’s confidence grew. Today, he has re-enrolled in college, where he continues to pursue a certificate in graphic design and has earned a certificate in video production. Additionally, he has obtained a part-time job at a local clothing retailer. Each day, Patrick displays increased confidence and makes more progress towards his goals.
