Goodwill Manasota Expands JobsPlus Language Program

The Giving Coast

MacKenzie Scott’s gift of $10 million last December allowed Goodwill Manasota to continue to launch new programs and expand existing ones in order to better serve the community. Goodwill is expanding the scope of its JobsPlus Language (JPL) program to hire, train and retain up to 10 workers (to start) with no, or extremely limited, English fluency. The overall goals of the JobsPlus Language program are: to serve 50 limited English proficiency team members, to graduate 10 JPL team members into other job slots and additional job skills training programs, to provide an internal pathway to better wages, and to offer an immersion model that can improve overall English proficiency in Manatee County.
