HELP (Human Services Employment Ladder Program) is Goodwill’s innovative course for job seekers interested in careers helping others. The eight-week program prepares participants to become entry-level direct support professionals in human services.

Students learn the essentials of the field while gaining a significant amount of experience in personal interaction with disadvantaged populations. Graduates become qualified to fill the increasing need for caring, professional workers in community residences, shelters, day programs and other human services settings.

The HELP class runs Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., from Oct. 1 to Nov. 21. Contact Kathleen Pena, HELP coordinator, for more information at 617-541-1499 or kpena@goodwillmass.org.
