Goodwill Industries of Arkansas believes that all individuals have the capacity to succeed with the right resources – despite disability, illiteracy, a criminal record or an unfortunate series of events. The Excel Center® at Goodwill Industries of Arkansas – established in 2017 – offers nontraditional students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma.
The Excel Center, a high school created specifically for adults, is strategically designed to eliminate the obstacles that initially prevented graduation. This no-cost education offers flexible + accelerated class schedules, with life coaches who encourage and counsel each student; additional resources include childcare and transportation assistance. Goodwill Arkansas emphasizes hands-on, relationship-based services so its clients have mentors and cheerleaders throughout their journey.
In June, The Excel Center hosted its annual summer graduation including 18 Arkansans whose lives will be transformed by the power of knowledge. Read Avery Jennings’ story of success in this month’s issue of Inviting Arkansas.
