The funds raised from our generous donors and shoppers, stay in Arkansas and fund these programs that change lives through education, training and employment:


Education and training are key components of our mission to change the lives of Arkansans and transform our state’s workforce. At Goodwill Training & Education Centers, we combine the services of The Excel Center® and The Academy under one roof – removing barriers and allowing students to earn high school diplomas and trade skill certifications with convenience, expert guidance and a supportive student community.
