I work for The Oak Crest Institute of Science, a non-profit chemistry research lab and mentoring facility in Pasadena. Like most non-profits, we have a lot of work to get done and not enough staff or volunteers to accomplish all our goals. When I met Jericho Road Project Pasadena's Executive Director, Melanie Goodyear, in late 2010; I was thrilled to learn about the incredible services Jericho Road provides in matching skilled, dedicated volunteers with local non-profits. I first requested a volunteer in early 2011 as I prepared to hold a big event to introduce Oak Crest to the community more widely. From the early planning stages through the evening itself, Melanie and her volunteers were incredible resources of knowledge and energy that propelled us to meet our goals. It was a huge relief to have someone to ask questions or advice of throughout the process. Now I've been tasked with updating the navigation style of our website and knew who to call. Melanie has done it again - matching me with an excellent web designer with the skills and interest in helping Oak Crest succeed. The process is well-designed so that we and the volunteer have clear goals and measurable objectives. Everyone goes into the project knowing what to expect and how to accomplish what we want done. Jericho Road provides an invaluable service to local non-profits and creates meaningful volunteering opportunities that are respectful of her volunteers' time. Thanks, Jericho Road!!!
