Every year, over 650,000 individuals return to their communities from correctional institutions. When they return, they face immense challenges that make it difficult for them to reintegrate in their community and find viable employment opportunities. Public and private organizations are devoting more effort and resources towards developing city, county, state, and nation-wide collaborative efforts to streamline coordination of reentry workforce services. Our topic for this session is: Collaborating for Impact! During this webinar, we will learn from three organizations that are taking different approaches to collaborate and mobilize stakeholders, and the impact of the collective efforts on their communities. Date: Friday, September 17th Time: 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm EST / 10:00 am – 11:15 am PST Register by clicking here.
