Goodwill Young Professionals Council


The mission of the Goodwill of Greater Washington Young Professionals Council is to develop the next generation of leaders by offering hands on governance and professional growth opportunities that support Goodwill’s mission to transform lives and communities through the power of education and employment.


We envision the Young Professionals Council becoming the region’s premiere source for developing the next generation of business and community leaders through the management of self-sustaining and self-governing operations that make a measurable and sustainable impact on the lives of people with disabilities and disadvantages in the greater Washington, DC area.

Goodwill of Greater Washington is Looking for Young Professionals to Help Make A Difference in Our Nation’s Capital

In some regions of our nation’s capital, unemployment is approaching 17%. Join Goodwill’s Young Professionals Council and become part of a group of young professionals committed to helping our region’s most vulnerable citizens find hope and dignity through the power of work.

By becoming a part of Goodwill, you are helping to build a community where people are empowered to achieve their fullest potential and RISE to their highest level of personal success!

Members will work together throughout the year with the single purpose of helping individuals with disabilities and disadvantages find work. Together, we can put our nation’s capital back to work.
