Meet Kathy, a participant in Goodwill’s EARN Program! Kathy moved to the Pittsburgh area about three years ago as a single mother of six. Despite coming to Goodwill during the pandemic, she was determined to complete the program quickly. After much hard work, Kathy earned her certification as a Peer Specialist, which helped enrich her Associate’s Degree.
Goodwill’s mission resonated with Kathy and her passion for helping youth. Kathy liked being at Goodwill so much that she accepted a full-time position as a Program Specialist with Goodwill’s YouthWorks program this past March!
Kathy shares her gratitude for the EARN team for giving her the motivation and encouragement she needed to obtain employment, leading to a fulfilling career in Human Services. The EARN team is extremely impressed by her incredible determination, talent, and positive energy – all of which have made her a valuable addition to the organization! Congratulations and welcome to the Goodwill team!
