Let Goodwill's GoodBIZ program put you on the path to running a successful business.


It takes more than a good idea to launch and sustain a successful business. And Goodwill has a program and resources that can help.

Our self-employment program, GoodBIZ, is a 15-week training program that helps both established and prospective business owners develop, implement and refine their business plan. The training curriculum is structured to cover a myriad of business topics including:
• Business Feasibility
• Concept and Business Plan Development
• Marketing (including social media)
• Financial Literacy and Management
• Business Law
• Human Resources
• Intellectual Property


Upon completion of the program, participants are paired with a business coach to support them as their business grows and changes. The business coach has the experience and resources to help business owners implement and refine their business strategies.

Attend an information session in our South DeKalb Career Center to learn more about GoodBiz and the tools available through Goodwill. 

The sessions provide an overview of the program and outline expectations for those interested in starting or expanding a business. Individuals must attend an information session to be considered for the program. 

South DeKalb Career Center information sessions are held every Thursday at 11:30am.
