This webinar is based on lessons learned from integrating reentry and employment interventions to help people returning home after incarceration find and keep employment. The presentation will be especially useful for corrections, reentry, and workforce development administrators and practitioners that are interested in maximizing scarce resources and improving recidivism and employment outcomes. Presenters will:
Discuss promising practices for connecting people to appropriate services based on their specific risk of reoffending and the associated needs;
Highlight examples of integrating evidence-based and promising practices from the corrections and workforce development fields to improve outcomes for people in the criminal justice system;
Demonstrate the importance of engaging leadership and direct service staff in planning a systems-wide coordinated process; and,
Discuss strategies for realigning resources to improve reentry and employment outcomes.
