Vocational Training

Goodwill Industries of Mississippi is proud to partner with the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services (MDRS) to provide exceptional training and employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Through this valuable partnership, we aim to empower individuals to overcome barriers, gain valuable skills, and achieve sustainable employment. Our collaborative program offers a wide range of vocational training options and personalized career counseling, ensuring that participants receive the support they need to succeed in the workplace. These services are offered at all of Goodwill of Mississippi's retail locations during normal business hours (10AM-6PM) at zero cost to the participant. Training is tailored to the needs of the individual, so the scope and timeframe for each person differs based upon their goals/objectives.  Together with MDRS, we are committed to creating an inclusive and accessible environment where individuals can maximize their potential and thrive in their chosen careers.
