Way to Work

 

Become a Member

At Way to Work, our mission is to help you achieve success through a network of comprehensive employment and barrier removal services. We do this by addressing the multiple concerns and needs of our Members – helping you overcome barriers that keep you from attaining long-term employment and financial self-sufficiency.

Unlike a placement agency or temporary service, Way to Work is committed to helping its members attain full-time employment with benefits, achieve personal stability, and improve their life. With all Way to Work services offered at no cost, members can expect to receive:

  • One-on-One Employment Coaching
  • Educational Resources
  • Job Readiness Training
  • Financial Literacy and Budgeting Services
  • Barrier Removal Resources and Referrals
  • Legal Advocacy

Want to learn more or know someone who could benefit from our program? Please call us at (270) 506-4950 or email our team at waytowork@goodwillky.org. View and download our Way to Work Flyer for Job Seekers.
