Review for Jacobs Ladder Job Center, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer for Jacob’s Ladder Job Center for about 5 years now and would not trade this experience for anything. Jacobs Ladder provides hands on training in work ethics, writing resumes, interview preparation and professional attire. The confidence and encouragement people obtain here are priceless. Even in a down economy, the clients, some of which are considered "unemployable and chronically unemployed" have a drive to succeed that stems from the core beliefs and training provided here. Steffi Travis and her team are amazing and the program is wonderful.

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

The commitment of the staff to help people obtain gainful employment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more space.

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

Watching people tranform in front of my eyes, literally. Some clients come in only owning the clothes on their body. Asssiting them with clothes that look good on them creates a change in posture, eye contact and confidence.

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

Professional & Exceptional!

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

Begin to break the cycle of unemployment and make a difference in countless lives.

Ways to make it better...

The clothes closet is in need of more professional attire, especially in larger women's sizes.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding and economic needs,like everywhere else

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is a great organization and an asset to the Charlotte community.
