The L.I.F.E. Academy vocational training program is offered to qualifying students. This career-focused program begins with detailed vocational assessments which determine a student's individual interests, aptitudes, and capabilities.
Our students are then exposed to a variety of employment opportunities through career exploration activities, including paid work experience and internships.
The Goodwill Employment Guarantee:
After graduation, L.I.F.E. Academy vocational training students will not be left without employment options. As part of Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida's School to Work Transition Program, graduates of the vocational training program may be provided with a paid position within Goodwill's organization.
Employment options at Goodwill will vary from jobs in operations to retail to administration, depending on the student's skill level and assessment results.
Several L.I.F.E. Academy students are currently earning paychecks at Goodwill and other employers across Southwest Florida. Learn more about these success stories.
