Have you ever visited a Goodwill Outlet World? It’s a truly unique experience. When items don’t sell at Goodwill’s regular, retail stores, they are transferred to the Outlet Worlds where they’re sold by the pound at deep discounts. Just because the items have been through the stores, doesn’t mean you can’t find some great buys, though. Check out this video in which Goodwill’s Life Stylist explains how the Outlet World experience works.

Are you looking for a way to get involved in the community this summer? By volunteering with Goodwill Denver, you could have a positive impact on the life of a local student. In particular, Goodwill is looking for volunteers to become “Summer Bridge” mentors for recent high school graduates. The Goodwill Denver Summer Bridge Mentoring program is designed to help high school graduates (who will be first generation college students) transition from high school to college successfully. Students are matched up one-on-one with adult mentors from the local community who have graduated from college and are pursuing a career. The mentors and mentees meet once a week in group settings over the summer between high school and college, then one on one periodically (or over the phone) throughout their first year of college.
