Goodwill's Flip the Script program is Detroit’s and one of the nation’s most proven, successful and cost effective alternative services models for young men16-30 years of age.
Over the past ten years, Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit has developed and refined a tremendously effective, outcome-based life transformational mentoring and job training program that has and continues to make a profound impact. Flip the Script® prepares men ages 16-30 who reside in Detroit or Wayne County for non-traditional careers including the skilled trades, building and construction industries, as well as entry level green jobs. The program’s curriculum centers on training (or retraining) participants in critical areas with mathematics as its foundation as well as reading enrichment, positive relationship development, male responsibility, fatherhood, positive citizenship and workplace ethics. The primary goal of the program is to enable men to become economically self-sufficient individuals and positive heads of household while preparing them for entry level jobs and non-traditional careers.
