Review for Metropolitan New York Coordinating Council on Jewish Poverty, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Lou and I initially chose to volunteer for Met Council because of their many community initiatives. What has kept me volunteering is the staff of Met Council. I have seen the dedication in time and effort from the people that are a part of the organization. In this difficult economy, I have seen their efforts pay off into job placements. I have witnessed the patient efforts to develop employable skills in their clients. And I have spoken to staff during hours long past their regular working day. I have a choice in volunteering for any organization, and I want to chose one that is exceptional. I truly believe that I have made the right choice.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing help in finding meaningful employment. For example, a client with a background in fashion design received skills that she needed in order to find a job in the fashion industry. Met Council provided her with the skills and she is now employed.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my interactions with the staff and the satisfaction in helping our clients.

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

The staff has been caring. The were truly concerned about my personal health when I underwent a medical procedure.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue its efforts on an expanded basis, which is especially important in these tough economic times. Specifically, by hiring more staff (including some of our clients) to be involved in more outreach initiatives.
