SCOOP

BY SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JAN 13, 2018

Goodwill Manasota is launching a new partnership with Replay Outreach in an effort to help at-risk youth in our community. The organizations will combine their respective expertise in career services and youth outreach to provide job training and shadowing, and the opportunity for part-time jobs, with the goal of helping teens get on the path to future success. Replay Outreach is a not-for-profit headquartered in Manatee County that is “dedicated to guiding at-risk teens in discovering their direction, passion and purpose.” Through this partnership, local at-risk teens are benefiting from the opportunity to work in Goodwill Manasota’s Manatee County stores as part of Replay’s Xceleration job training program. The goal of the 12-week program is to empower at-risk teens to find areas in which they excel while learning job readiness skills meant to prepare them for future success. Participants receive eight weeks of training, then a minimum of 24 hours of job shadowing, followed by employment at local area businesses, including Goodwill.
