Josh's Story

Josh was introduced to Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires & So. Vermont through the Viability Program in Great Barrington where he had participated in an animation internship.  The Goodwill staff were so impressed with Josh’s work ethic and enthusiasm that they hired him.


Since that time, Josh has been a shining star of the Goodwill team, stocking book shelves, taking out the trash, keeping the store well sanitized  and generally providing motivation for excellence within the Great Barrington Store.  He likes seeing all of the fascinating colors in the Goodwill clothing and objects that help him get ideas for his animation projects.
