Ashley was referred by DORS and came to Goodwill in hopes of finding a job she was passionate about, working with children. She had previously received a certificate in child care, but needed some assistance in finding a job in that field. Goodwill linked Ashley with a volunteer opportunity at a local Child Care Center to get some hands on experience, and supported her in finding a job nearby at a local restaurant while she was gaining experience at the Center. Once she felt confident, Ashley pursued potential job opportunities, and with support from Goodwill’s Business Developer, Ashley obtained a job at Children’s Center for Discovery as a teacher’s assistant. She was thrilled when she gained her “dream job” working with children, and quickly received a promotion for doing so well. With hard work and dedication, Ashley succeeded in following her dream and became a day care teacher.
