Professional organizers donate time with Quantum Leap

See also

My professional organization, the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) has a community service program called Quantum Leap. Its mission is to help people in transition who can't afford organizing help, but desperately need to learn skills to help them succeed.

Local organizers donate their time to teach at shelters and aid organizations. Popular topics are basic paper organizing, time management, money management and organizing skills for mothers.

NAPO members give attendees supplies donated by NAPO, Esselte/Pendaflex, and Office Max, including file folders, hanging folders, durable portable file boxes, and other supplies.

Many attendees have never learned simple tasks such as keeping track of bills to pay and filing their important medical and legal paperwork. The classes also introduce them to making and prioritizing to do lists, creating meal plans and shopping lists, and basic budgeting.

Without these skills, people's lives can be too chaotic for them to have time or energy to put towards navigating their transitions or recovering from setbacks. They learn to take back control of their lives and successfully pursue goals.
