About Us

Welcome to Shoreline Workforce Development Services, the education, training and employment division of Goodwill Industries of Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo Counties. We provide workforce development services designed to assist people with barriers to employment as they maximize the use of their abilities in the competitive labor market. We also assist people who may be vocationally disadvantaged due to changes in the labor market, job loss, etc. Our services include evaluation, situational assessment, vocational exploration, classroom and on-the-job training programs, placement assistance and supported employment. Our goals are to work with participants’ abilities rather than their barriers to employment. We provide a positive learning environment to assist people to acquire skills for competitive employment. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining your vocational plan goals.

Shoreline is approved by the California State Department of Consumer Affairs as a Private Post-Secondary and Vocational Educational Institution, and its services are accredited by CARF, The Accreditation Commission. At Shoreline, the goal of our education and job training services is to assist people in securing career track employment in the competitive labor market. This intent makes us uniquely different from most community college vocational preparation programs in two significant ways.

First, we measure our success not by how many people have completed our training programs, but by how many people go to work upon graduation. Second, people enrolled in our job training programs learn what they need to get and retain a job. We work with employers to identify the skills, behaviors and traits critical for success. We work with students to achieve a high level of performance, including near perfect attendance and a strong work ethic, practices that will place them firmly on a successful career track. We provide an intensified learning environment with a great deal of applicable knowledge and support.
