36.L&L – Arden Floran

Goodwill Industries of Michiana offers a wide range of programs with a single aim: helping people “live their most abundant lives,” in the words of Arden Floran, the nonprofit’s vice president of workforce development services. Of course, nurturing abundant lives takes abundant resources. And so Goodwill is integrating courses on Bendable into its Group Violence Intervention initiative, Nurse-Family Partnership, Excel Center high school for adults and more. Soon, it will also use the lifelong learning system to train its own employees. Whatever its use, said Arden, “Bendable has been great for us.”
