It has been a busy year for us as we have worked hard to lay the groundwork to launch Pacific Reentry Career Services. We are excited about the things we have planned for the upcoming year. Stay tuned to our blog for updates on these programs and more:
- Employer Summits--We are planning on several employer summits throughout the state to bring employers together to discuss the benefits of hiring the formerly incarcerated, address their concerns and share success stories.
- Mentorship Program--We will start mentoring formerly incarcerated women in their quest to find meaningful employment. This includes supporting them throughout the early months of employment.
- Job Seeker Workshops--We will work with other service providers to put on workshops for formerly incarcerated job seekers.
- Job Seeker Guide--We have been hard at work drafting a comprehensive job seeker guide to help those trying to navigate the job search process following release from jail or prison.
Thank you to all our friends, family and colleagues who have supported us, given us advice, donated to help us launch and been our biggest cheerleaders. Have a wonderful holiday season!
