Jericho Road changed my life! My one career regret was not completing a CPA certificate in the earlier part of my career. A Jericho Road volunteer project allowed me to complete the work experience requirement and return to the workforce as a successful Accounting Consultant. It is often very difficult for a women to return to her career after taking time off to raise a family. But a Jericho Road project filled that career void which gave me confidence, great work experience returning me to a rewarding career.
Jericho Road Pasadena continues to be one of the best organizations I have had the good fortune to work with in the nonprofit realm. The exceptional leadership of Melanie Goodyear brings a warmth of understanding for the struggles of growing a nonprofit. She has a talent for creating scopes of work that make sense for building successful nonprofits, step-by-step. The professionals who volunteer their expert skills for Jericho Road Pasadena are leaders in their fields, with mindfulness to give back to the community. My confidence and acumen in growing my nonprofit has increased ten-fold due to Jericho Road Pasadena. Thank you to GREAT staff and volunteers!
Jericho Road Pasadena is an absolute gem of an organization and a pleasure to volunteer for! Melanie Goodyear, Executive Director, is the consummate pro; I love her unflappable style and her ability to communicate client needs clearly and to act as a strong liaison between client and volunteer --always there with the information I need to do my job. I've been particularly impressed by the diversity and quality of volunteer services this organization provides, as well as the commitment and passion for the community. Two happy thumbs up to this group!
When I first met with JRP earlier this year, I was impressed with the mission and their commitment to the Non-Profit community in and around Pasadena. Now having worked with them on a couple of different projects, I am blown away by their capabilities. I have since come across dozens of organizations that have benefited from JRP's services and without exception, each non-profit had tremendous things about their results. I am proud to be associates with this organization.
