Power of Work

Power of Work logo

The KentuckianaWorks Power of Work program, operated by Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, matches eager, willing, and prepared workers with employers. Participants receive skill assessment and job readiness training so they are able to smoothly transition into employment. Our employment specialists provide individual attention and support through case management and job coaching.

Unlike a staffing agency or temporary service, there is no cost to the employer to place participants into jobs. Candidates are pre-screened and highly motivated to work. We provide follow-up services to support individuals who have been placed into employment.

Participants of the program have access to:

  • Job readiness workshops
  • Work experience training program
  • Vocational assessment
  • Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE)
  • Job survival and success scale
