On the Job Training

Learning on the job is a great way to advance your career. We don’t believe in ad hoc systems that make education an afterthought. We offer regular training and dedicate time for staff to attend classes and information sessions. “We continually work to promote formal learning for our staff,” explains Cathy Farmer, Goodwin House Alexandria Director of Clinical Services.

You can pursue new interests, hone skills and get experience under the formal umbrella of our on-site training programs.

Tuition Assistance

Want to go back to school to follow your career dreams? College is expensive, but we can help. Since 2017, we have paid more than $500,000 in tuition assistance for our team members. And many of the employees who received this help also earned promotions at Goodwin House, in part because of their education.

Tuition assistance is not limited to full-time employees, certain jobs or departments. Join us, meet the eligibility requirements, dream and enroll. We will help you get there.

Whether you are a natural leader with experience or just starting out with limited leadership skills, you might be surprised by how much you can grow by learning to lead. Goodwin House needs leaders, and we invest in creating them.
