Have you ever wondered what it is like for someone re-entering society after being incarcerated?

This event will help you learn how challenging it can be for individuals returning from incarceration (returning citizens). During this simulation, you will navigate through the first four weeks of the journey back into society and must comply with all the requirements of supervised release.

How does the simulation work?

  • Assume a role of a newly returning citizen
  • Balance the challenges of life after re-entry while completing supervision tasks
  • Experience “real life” struggles and stigmas
  • Participate in short group discussions between simulated weeks

This simulation is designed for elected officials, judges, doctors, nurses, lawyers, clergy, people who work in social service fields, police officers, probation officers, parole officers, correctional officers, criminal justice employees, college students and community members who would like to learn about the re-entry process from a new perspective.
