About 

The Goodwill Opportunity Campus, opening in 2016, will be a game-changer for disadvantaged job seekers, providing them with access to critical resources and supports under one roof. The Campus will feature a 160,000-square-foot career services center located on an 18-acre site at the corner of Wilkinson Boulevard and Boyer Street in Charlotte.

The new facility will offer access to technology, assessment and testing in a comfortable environment, personalized mentoring and coaching, a warm hand-off to strategic partner agencies located on campus, work experiences through Goodwill’s on-site enterprises and expanded skill development capabilities.

The Campus will be designed to provide a seamless continuum of support with increased opportunities for access to services that meet basic needs: a job resource center, private interview rooms, testing and assessment accommodations, a mock retail training store, youth center, child care facility, full-service kitchen, café, community conference center, as well as a greater number of classrooms and computer labs.

In addition to providing training and employment opportunities, this multi-use facility is also designed to house Goodwill’s business enterprise operations, administrative support services and workforce services operations. It will also include a Goodwill Outlet Store, community conference center, financial services and health and wellness services.

Goodwill invites the community to invest in the bold vision for Goodwill Opportunity Campus.

 

Events

On August 5th, Goodwill announced it will change the trajectory of poverty for disadvantaged job seekers and their families in the Charlotte metro area by building the Goodwill Opportunity Campus. The announcement was shared with the more than 135 public guests and media during a Growing Opportunity Celebration at the future site of the new campus in west Charlotte. Charlotte Chamber President Bob Morgan, City Councilwoman of District 2, LaWana Mayfield, Charlotte and North Carolina President of Bank of America, Charles Bowman and Co-Chair of the Goodwill Opportunity Campus Capital Campaign all made remarks about the impact the Campus will have on the region during the presentation.
