My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Jacobs Ladder Job Center, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA
I volunteered at Jacob's Ladder for six months in 2011. Due to the hustles and bustles of my last semester in the Human Services Program at CPCC, I haven't been able to contribute my services to Jacob's Ladder. I really miss the wonderful staff and clients that I came in contact with there. It was uplifting to see such remarkable growth in the individuals who participated and I felt proud to be a part of their journey!!! I now intern for an addiction center here in Charlotte. I always refer our clients in need of employment to Jacob's Ladder Job Center! God Bless Jacob's Ladder! I hope see you all as soon as I graduate... Much Love, jpigg
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I observed two seperate classes personally grow into business-minded, employable adults. I watched clients light up as they came in reporting they found employment.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
I learned how to interview (mock interview) and mentor individuals from every walk of life. I learned how to be an empathetic, caring individual through placing myself around the highly skilled staff and through listening to clients.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Volunteering at Jacob's Ladder made me believe that I was in the correct program (Human Services) at school. It encouraged me to move forward in my education. I felt like I needed to help people the rest of my life.
