Good Seed helps clients to create resumes and cover letters as well as provides motivational and mental health support during the potentially stressful process of seeking employment, as well as maintaining employment. Good Seed believes regardless of a person’s disability or situation in life, there is a meaningful and substantive employment opportunities available for them. We know the value of collaboration, and partnership. As a result, Good Seed collaborates with organizations such as Community Career Development, Inc., South Bay One-Stop Business & Career Center and America’s Job Center to help locate positions and provide additional services for our clients.
Over the past two fiscal years, GSS has secured paid employment for youth with the help of many community partners. Youth have been placed in retail positions at Walmart, Macy’s, and Walgreens, in hospitality positions at Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Jamba Juice, and Good Seed CDC. Additionally, youth have secured positions with DirecTV, and Uber. We have found that if you give youth the skills, support, and a little patience, they can achieve what seemed impossible.
