Bellevue Goodwill’s Job Training and Education Center, located at 14515 NE 20th Street, is enrolling people in free classes for the summer session, which runs from May 27 to July 17. The courses teach people with significant barriers to employment skills needed to find and keep jobs.
In addition to Adult Basic Education classes, the center will offer Career Skills Workshops as part of the Goodwill Works program. Goodwill Works is a “soft skills” program that focuses on personality and behavior rather than formal or technical knowledge. Students can take workshops on interviewing, resume writing and time management.
The following classes are available:
* Basic English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
* Intermediate ESOL – Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
* Computer Fundamentals (for those with little or no computer experience) – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 3 p.m. or 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
