The store that sells "old" clothes, books, and furniture added "new" starts for employees and others. Goodwill of the Coastal Empire opened a Job Connection Career Center through their Statesboro store. The site is the sixth of its kind in the area.
"We want to help people in the community," explained CEP Mohsen Badran. "People can come here for job training, help with GED, ESL (English as Second Language). We'll have a specialist here to work with you."
According to Goodwill, the mission is to help people gain the skills needed for work and move toward jobs that pay wages or salaries and allow those workers to contribute tax revenues instead of needing public assistance.
The center is located next to the retail store on Northside Drive beside Lowe's.
