Prison life doesn’t always mean sitting in a cell all day.
For many aspiring individuals, there are education opportunities and even many in-prison jobs. This means that when a person is released on parole, they have had the opportunity to spend months or years learning about a field of work.
For a potential employer, this is a valuable labor resource to tap into.
For episode four of the Covation Center’s From Bars to Business podcast, Dr. Steve Brady talks with Theresa Kohler, of CareerLink, about many inmates’ “Pathway to Transformation” as they spend their prison years preparing for a new start and a new career.
