LAS VEGAS — In the Spring of 2021, Goodwill of Southern Nevada (Goodwill®) launched the Electronic Recycling and De-manufacturing Experience. This new program welcomes qualified individuals willing to gain hands-on work experience. This Community Based Training (CBT) program allows participants who have an interest in working within the IT industry an opportunity to learn job skills in a realistic environment, while also properly recycling and disposing of various computer parts.
“We are proud to be a valued partner of the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.” said Rick Neal, president and CEO of Goodwill, “Part of our mission is to provide valuable resources and training opportunities for the evolving job market and to ensure our participants are ready for the workplace.”
In addition to the training and exposure to important job skills for persons with documented disabilities through the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, this program is an important component to Goodwill’s commitment to sustainability. During 2020, Goodwill of Southern Nevada diverted 28.7 million pounds of goods from landfills.
This CBT program includes supervision through Goodwill’s Disability Programs. The warehouse environment enables participants to gain valuable job skills while being assessed for competitive employment opportunities. People who have a documented disability and are interested in this program must be referred by a Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation counselor.
