Partners In Training is an employment and training partnership between The Kenny Family Foundation, Wakefern Food Corp. and our social service partner, Goodwill for people who are currently on financial assistance or unemployed. The goal of this program is to transition these individuals into jobs at ShopRite and other retailers. Training takes place in a classroom within a miniature Shoprite store built on the premises of the Goodwill and transitions into actual stores for real life training.
The Goodwill of Delaware & Delaware County is the ideal organization to work with for our program, Partners In Training as our missions and philosophies perfectly align. With over 90 years of service to their community, the Goodwill provides education, job training and employment services that prepare disadvantaged and disabled individuals for competitive employment.

“Our involvement with the ShopRite Cashier Training Program has enabled Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County to provide marketable skills training and jobs for those who turn to us for assistance. The collaboration with The Kenny Family Foundation, the Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware and the Wakefern Food Corporation enables us to provide real-life work experience combined with training in essential employability skills. It’s a win-win proposition for everyone involved. Job seekers with barriers to self-sufficiency, who depend upon Goodwill, learn skills that will allow them to obtain jobs that lead to family-sustaining wages. ShopRite is able to staff their stores with well-trained, motivated employees who have completed a program specifically designed to meet their employment criteria. “
