Jericho Road Pasadena bridges communities by matching the professional talents of volunteers with the needs of community-based nonprofit organizations to promote community development, strengthen social services, and enrich the lives of volunteers.
Since 2010, we have connected volunteer experts with nonprofits that offer critical services to underserved residents in their communities. By meeting the internal needs of these nonprofits free of charge - from strategic planning to marketing and IT - nonprofit staff can focus on stronger delivery of services, thereby building better communities. JRP follows a seven-step match-making and project management process that defines clear outcomes for the nonprofit and matches the right volunteer to the nonprofit’s need. Projects range from one-time consultations to year-long projects, and might be executed by one volunteer or a team.
I volunteer my services to clients of Jericho Road for their Human Resources needs. The projects that their clients need help in are perfectly matched with my time schedule! Melanie is great at matching me together with their clients and I love her commitment of ensuring that both her clients and the volunteer (me) can work will together! Jericho Road's commitment to helping their clients and volunteers meet their goals are wonderful!
I have been volunteering for JRP for the past 6 months and it has been a pleasure working with Melanie. JRP provided me with the best volunteering opportunities matching my skills and I will be more than happy to work with them going forward.
I can't say enough about Jericho Road Pasadena! One of the most honest organizations I have had the pleasure to volunteer with. I have been impressed by the diversity and quality of volunteer services this organization provides, as well as the commitment and passion for the community. The Executive Director, Melanie Goodyear, is a pro! Very professional, consistent and easy to work with. Always there with the information I need to do my job.
