R4R Ready For Re-Entry Coach Training prepares participants to effectively mentor men and women returning to our communities from prison and jail. The R4R training addresses potential challenges, issues, and the rewards of mentoring these returning citizens. You will become familiar with Maine Department of Corrections(MDOC) Case Workers, Probation Officers, and staff to learn about the system from the DOC's perspective and best practices when communicating with DOC and mentees. Throughout the training you will hear from folks with the lived experience of incarceration and successful re-entry. Separate workshops will address basic information around the higher rates of mental health and substance use challenges faced by this population, presented by experts in their fields, and how to access resources in your community. To round out your training, additional workshops feature employment resources and the biggest challenge facing the formerly incarcerated; HOUSING.

MDOC Deputy Commissioner Dr. Ryan Thornell will officially open the Training at 9:00am on Saturday Sept. 21st! Certificates will be awarded for completion of the training.

Lunch will be provided on both days. Coffee, muffins, and fruit will be available in the morning.
