Workforce GPS: Decreasing Recidivism through Vocational Training and Education Programs

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 68% of prisoners released in 2005 returned to prison within three years of release, and 77% were arrested within five years of release. The Workforce Systems Strategies (WSS) resources below provide data analyses, literature reviews, and other tools through which practitioners, researchers, and stakeholders can improve or create effective programs that support individuals as they transition from prison to the community, such as providing employment services pre-release.

Reminder: Second Chance Pell Pilot Program

Dear Colleagues:

Few interventions have been shown to reduce recidivism and prepare people in prison to lead productive lives like access to quality postsecondary education and training (see RAND study findings below).  Today’s OCTAE Connection is another reminder to the field about the Second Chance Pell Pilot Program available to institutions of higher education.  The deadline for institutions to apply for this pilot program is October 2, 2015, for the 2016-17 academic year. Please share this with your postsecondary partners and Correctional Education colleagues.
