Goodwill Partners with the City of Fort Worth for Summer Earn & Learn

This year, Goodwill had the opportunity to partner with the City of Fort Worth to teach students with disabilities valuable job skills and gain independence. Check out their stories, made possible with help from Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County and Texas Workforce Solutions- Vocational Rehabilitation.
