Description

The Correctional Adult Reentry Education, Employment, and Recidivism Strategies (CAREERRS) Program, a Second Chance Act program, is designed to help communities establish education, vocation, and job training programs in their correctional systems that address employment challenges facing incarcerated youth and adults re-entering those communities and the workforce.

Through this opportunity, BJA is seeking applications to implement or expand education and employment programs that emphasize strong partnerships with corrections, parole, probation, education, workforce development, and reentry service providers, in order to enhance employment prospects for incarcerated youths and adults reentering the workforce. These partnerships can support the establishment and improvement of academic and vocational education programs and career training programs available in prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities. Programs should be focused on the 3-year period before release, as well as upon transition and reentry into the community.

Date Created: February 27, 2020
