Each of the individuals who participated in GOALS has their own unique story, but one thing they all had in common was taking the first step to writing their own success story.

Here are their stories...


“There was an employer right next door to where GOALS classes were being held. I took my résumé, and I went next door, dropped my resume off, and within a day, I had a phone call wanting an interview and was hired in less than a week.”

Since moving to Kansas to pursue a job that didn’t pan out, Brad had nothing but tough breaks. That ended when he signed up for GOALS. In the program, he discovered his strengths and passions, and now is working full time while pursuing his bachelor’s in education.
