Review for Maryland New Directions, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering for Maryland New Directions for several years, in different capacities (working with clients in the computer lab, serving on committees, helping out at events, etc.) so have seen this organization hard-at-work from several angles. The career programs offered are in-depth and relevant, the job coaching is earnest and effective, and I've personally witnessed countless clients improve their situations, as well as positively shift their self esteem and life-outlook, with MND's support. (MND's support includes targeted career training, assistance with resume writing, soft-skills training, a clothing closet for interview clothes, mock interviews, and job coaching that helps target and support the client's job search while also helping the client remove obstacles to employment, when needed.) I enjoy volunteering here and being part of an organization I know is making a positive difference in Baltimore. (MND is also one of the Baltimore non-profits I confidently donate to every year since I know first-hand that MND runs a lean and efficient organization whose programs are effectively shifting people out of poverty into sustainable career employment. Their success rate is very high.)
