John Michael’s Story

“I’ve always had an interest to work on computers but without real work experience my dream could be only a hobby. Goodwill Dallas allowed me to volunteer in their computer department and then hired me as their Computer Technician. Goodwill trained me and gave me the tools to grow within the computer industry. Goodwill allows me to do the thing I love the most, which in my eyes makes me successful.”
