In an effort to help its employees to achieve work and life success, Goodwill Manasota is offering virtual ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes each week for team members whose primary language is not English. These classes, which are taught by instructors provided by the Literacy Council of Sarasota, are provided while employees are on the clock, at no cost to them. Goodwill GoodPartner Coach Pamela Bavo reports that, this year, Goodwill Manasota employs 73 team members who do not speak English as their primary language. Bavo said, "“We want to assist our non-English speakers in improving their language skills so that they can enroll in our training programs, get promotions at Goodwill and/or gain the skills and certifications they need to re-enter the industry they worked in before coming to the U.S."
