Review for New Directions Career Center, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

New Directions Career Center provides comprehensive career counseling to individuals, mainly women, and is staffed by licensed counselors who assist clients on an individual basis. The center offers several programs to individuals in transition, regardless of ability to pay, including an extensive 4-week program entitled New Directions. Since 2008, I have volunteered and, most recently completed an internship at the center. In leading/observing such classes as Communication & Assertiveness, Computer Basics, Goal Setting, Understanding Your Career Personality, Identifying Work Values and Networking and Informational Interviewing, I have observed many lives changed, barriers to employment successfully eliminated and economic independence achieved.

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

the classroom. The feedback and life changing reaction of the clients during specific class topics has been phenomenal.

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

working with both the caring staff and clients who are motivated and engaged to learn.

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

very professional, personable and extremely client-focused.

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

expand staff and programming further into Central Ohio.
