9/30/2010 – Center Partners with Goodwill Industries in Strategic to Improve Local Workforce Services

The Ray Marshall Center is collaborating with Goodwill Industries of Central Texas (GICT) and Goodwill Industries International on their Strategic Positioning Project. This project aims to strengthen GICT's efforts to assist community members whose needs and circumstances undermine their ability to obtain and maintain meaningful employment. The Center will develop a return-on-investment approach to determine community level effects of existing GICT programs, as well as map participants, services, and job placements in Central Texas. This information will be used to assess the effectiveness of GICT's existing workforce services for youth, disadvantaged adults, and persons with disabilities. In addition, the project will create mechanisms to improve outcomes by intensifying and/or expanding current services, extending or shifting geographic and/or target group coverage, or introduce new options to the current array of services offered.
