Maximizing Opportunities for Returning Citizens and the Construction Industry

No cost to attend! Please register by completing a ticket below.

Seminar Overview:

Seeking new hires? Consider returning citizens! Gain a better understanding of “reentry,” the demographics, the data and the impact on communities. This is the first in a series of education seminars focused on hiring and retaining persons with a criminal background.

Creating Opportunities & Building New Lives:

ABC chapters across Pennsylvania coordinated efforts and signed a statewide articulation agreement with the PA Department of Corrections. Often, an inmate is incarcerated at a facility away from their home. The new agreement provides returning citizens with access to all ABC registered apprenticeship programs in the Commonwealth and credit for their education while incarcerated. The Keystone Chapter is working with SCPA Works, a regional workforce development board in our footprint, to provide this forum for contractors and workforce professionals around the topic of reentry. Reentry is a term used to refer to issues related to the transition from the criminal justice system back to society.
