How many times have you been working with an offender to have them say to you that they will never be able to get a job because they have a criminal record? I know it happens a lot for me. As my learners achieve their high school equivalency and transition out, they tell me how hard it is to get a job because of their past mistakes. This month in the LINCS Resources, "Going to Work with a Criminal Record", offers advice on how to connect offenders with appropriate jobs and employers as well as tools to organize their efforts. It talks about things to avoid and how to develop important relationships. How do you help your learners transition when they tell you they can't?
