I want to invite you to review the resource What Re-Entry Services Can Do to Strengthen the Basic Skills of Former Inmates. Developed by The Open Door Collective, this resource is designed to help programs provide services to formerly incarcerated individuals and help them successfully transition to work, family, and civic roles. This guide will help you understand: (a) the central role that basic skills and related educational credentials can play in successful prisoner re-entry and (b) how reentry agencies can collaborate with basic education providers to help returnees develop necessary basic skills. It is also written for basic education providers, policymakers, and funders interested in supporting collaborations among reentry and adult basic skills service providers.
While this guide includes examples of how agencies can contribute to the planning and delivery of services, I'd love to hear what your doing.
