Goodwill Success Stories

Goodwill mission participants in the spotlight

Michael’s Story:

Michael was a participant in Goodwill’s Supported Employment Program in Rockford. While in the program, he worked very hard at improving his employment skills and focused on job searching.

Through Goodwill’s Supported Employment Program, Michael researched and applied for various jobs, but his dream was to work in the arcade and video game industry. In July 2020, Michael applied, interviewed and was hired at Tilted 10 at the CherryVale Mall.

Michael cleans the arcade games for customers and does a great job making sure all games are in working order for everyone to enjoy.

“I love working here because I know a lot about video games. This is what I want to do” ~ Michael

Keep up the great work Michael! All of us at Goodwill are so proud of you!
