Pittsburgh and Goodwill partner

Goodwill Industries of Pittsburgh announced a pilot program involving the City of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny County Department of Human Services.

The program’s goal is to provide work to individuals moving off of the welfare roles while developing solutions to environmental issues from electronic waste.

The joint venture will take advantage of Goodwill’s program that involves the agency’s reuse and recycling of donated computers, supported in part by Dell Inc.

Every donated computer collected at Goodwill locations will support this and other such workforce development projects.

“We will provide relevant work experience for up to 100 individuals per day who are transitioning from welfare to work. This opportunity will allow people to develop the necessary skills for future employment in high growth occupations,” said Judy Hill Finegan, manager, Pittsburgh Partnership.
