This event is part of the 2014 Spirit & Place Festival, which runs from November 7-16, 2014.
Join RecycleForce and Professor Susan Brin Hyatt to learn more about ex-offenders journey home and reentry into the workforce after life in prison. You will hear from Professor Hyatt about a study she has been working on about why employment is an effective method to prevent recidivism. She looks at ex-offenders who are on the cusp of rule violations and how sending them to work can turn their lives around.
In addition, several RecycleForce employees will be talking about their personal journeys and how having employment has helped improve their life after prison. RecycleForce's Director of Job Development, Calvin Houston, will be the moderator for this presentation.
