The March 2019 edition of the COABE Journal focuses on Prison Literacy. The article, PATHWAY TO SUCCESS: CREATING INDIVIDUALIZED CAREER PATHWAYS FOR INMATES AND REENTRANTS.
If you have not read it, I encourage you to read about the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections' 60-hour “Pathway to Success” course for inmates enrolling in vocational coursework. The piece highlights the use of the O*NET Interest Profiler by staff working to "show[ing] the inmates what jobs are available in their areas and providing hope for those getting ready to return to society" (57).
If you have read it, and are working in a correctional setting, it would be great to hear whether this program seems like it might be replicable within your setting? If you aren't sure, what are your questions/challenges to figuring out whether it's possible?
