The Goodwill Tech Academy offers a variety of workshops that allow our learners to receive real-time instruction from expert staff with corresponding practice exercises containing real-world examples.
Most of our workshops are presented in one-hour virtual sessions and only require access to an internet-enabled device. Topics are presented every month and can be attended more than once. And best of all, these workshops are free to attend!
