My name is Jasmine Maddox. I am 22 years old now. When I first start receiving help from Ceek To Fulfill I was 18 years old. They helped me open my eyes to many things. I learned how to manage money, live on my own, manners and choose the better things in live. I have got jobs and internships through them. I didn't graduate so they helped me receive my GED. I had trouble in writing so the program end up setting up classes for us that way we could get turtoring and we could pass our testes. Well the turtoring did work. I end up passing my writing test. so now I have my GED and I would love to thank Ceek To Fulfill . I also got my Work Ready Certificate because of this program. I think this is a great program for us young ladies and men. If it was not for they support so many great things would not have happen for me. The staff really do care about you. They have holidays events an they treat you like family. So once again I would like to thank this program for everything.
I have volunteered as a GED math teacher in here during Summer 2012. I taught math to several students and we could share our general stories to personal stories. The faculties were amazing and very nice. They were all open-minded and tried to understand each student from student's point of view. Nobody was arrogant or ignorant. Also, as I see the students' passion and motivation, I was motivated to help these students more. Moreover, it motivated myself to be improved personally and academically. This non-profit organization gave me a huge inspiration to be a more mature person. Even though it was short amount of time volunteering, I learned a lot from them. It was one of the best moment in my life. If I get a chance, I would definitely volunteer again at Ceek to Fulfill.
There is a huge difference between being a nonprofit and being about the community. Ceek-to-fulfill has touched many lives not because they receive huge monetary support but because their hearts are huge. When dealing with youth who have been torn down, turn away and talked about its good to know there is a place where they can go to feel whole again. Ceek-to-fulfill supports them by building character and accountability. I can't think of a more deserving group of people. The Director Mama Eve gives so much more than whats expected and it was an honor to work beside her and her staff.
I have volunteered with this program and have seen first hand the love and compassion they have for these young adults. Without people like this in the community, these kids would be left to fend for themselves.
