Workforce Development

Godman Guild’s Workforce Development programs are designed to allow individuals to obtain the education, training, and certifications needed to be successful in today’s workforce, reach a living and then thriving wage and create their unique path to success.
Our programs offer a comprehensive array of courses, assessments, and services to meet the needs of individuals, community partners, and employers across Central Ohio.

Work Readiness Academy

At the Guild’s Work Readiness Academy individuals can establish a firm foundation to build successful careers through workshops and our cornerstone 8-week cohort program.

Adult Literacy & Education

Our adult literacy and education programs, in partnership with Ohio Department of Education ASPIRE, provide you with the language, reading, and math skills needed to earn a high school equivalency certificate, enter college, or obtain a job.


  • The Guild is committed to cultivating a workforce of individuals Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs), which amounts to fifty percent of the U.S. workforce. This massive pool of talent is often overlooked by employers. By building this workforce up, the Guild facilitates individual mobility and community growth.
  • STARs deserve to craft their own career and build self-efficacy and the WRA is the catalyst to make it happen.


Dynamic Learning

The WRA delivers dynamic student experiences, a high percentage of completion and certification attainment, and a follow-up process that allows WRA graduates access to mentors, alumni, and opportunities to upskill.

Our collaborative employer partnership offerings expand STARs career options.

Our curriculum provides intensive training in professional skills development and collaborate with other training partners that specialize in high-impact training that support the career aspirations of our graduates.


Godman Guild offers training and certification courses through the National Retail Federation (NRF) Foundation RISE Up to clients, employees of our community, and employer partners. Our goal is to provide foundational employability skillsets to help secure jobs with plans of promotion in retail and beyond.
