Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and KentuckianaWorks have announced that Nicole McGill has been promoted to director of young adult services. She had been serving in this role in an interim capacity since last year.

As the director of young adult services, McGill will oversee the team behind The Spot: Young Adult Opportunity Center, a collaboration between Goodwill and KentuckianaWorks.

“Investing in young adults is important to me because they are our future leaders,” said McGill, who has worked at The Spot since July of 2021. “They deserve opportunities to thrive and become successful members of society. I am honored to work for an organization that encourages and supports youth development. We are making a difference in the lives of young people every day!”

McGill has more than a decade of experience in the nonprofit sector. She began her career serving single-parent and refugee families before moving into youth and young adult services. Her focus in recent years has been developing quality programming and connecting young adults to education, training and employment opportunities in Louisville.

McGill has also served on the Sexual Assault Awareness Planning Committee and as an AmeriCorps Vista member for the Homeless and Housing Coalition of Kentucky. She is a graduate of the University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work.
