Mission Moments: Tim's Story

Tim learned job skills and explored his career interests during Goodwill’s Quest Academy (formerly Urban Career Academy).

All Quest participants earn an internship as part of their Quest curriculum.  Tim’s internship was at Ruins Pub in Kansas City, MO.  During Tim’s internship, he learned about the restaurant business, gained new skills and confidence.

After completing his internship, Tim graduated from the Goodwill Quest Academy ready to pursue a permanent job.  With help from Goodwill, Tim applied for and earned a position at Anton’s Taproom and Restaurant in Kansas City, MO.  When Tim arrives at work, he receives a to-do list from the management with specific tasks to complete that day. The owner, Anton, appreciates and values Tim’s work ethic, helpfulness, and contributions. As part of the Anton’s team, Tim has a sense of community and accomplishment and has now sampled a taste of success.  

Tim, we're so proud of you.  Way to go!
