As a local nonprofit organization and the presenting sponsor for VYPE Magazine’s Community Athlete of the Month, Goodwill understands the importance of athletics and community involvement in building character and valuable skills that will be used later in life when entering the workforce. Goodwill’s mission, to provide job training and education opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment, is carried out in communities across Kansas. Each month, Goodwill recognizes a student athlete who excels within the community through volunteerism, charitable work and community involvement.
