I have been a participant in Jacob's Ladder program since January 4, 2010 through the Department of Social Services. Before entering the program, my social worker gave me great reviews on the Jacob's Ladder program. Being a part of the program has been one of the best experiences of my life. All of the staff and volunteers live and breathe the mission of the organization. Each day since I've started the program, I feel that I have learned a new technique or life lesson. Upon completion of this wonderful program, I have every intention of paying forward the knowledge that I have gained here.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

eager to help in any way possible. Each person offered something different. They offered their time and experience to help the client obtain employment. There was not a time that I asked a question without it being answered

Quotes from participants: I improved my writing skills tremendously. I finally learned how to fill out applications correctly and completely. I know how to write a cover letter and get why thank you notes are so important. I learned how to listen and remain calm during the interview. I’ve been to every program out there and you guys are the first ones to stay on me until I mastered the application and interview skills. I gained confidence during my presentations to classmates. Before I started I had no idea how to use the computer and now I can apply for online jobs and I know how to work with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. At first I did not want to be here at all, I thought blah just another program, but I learned more than I could have ever imagined this month. My classmates and teachers believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and that gave me hope to keep working hard to find my job.

The Great!
