New Report: Going to Work with a Criminal Record

New Report on Connecting Formerly Incarcerated People to the Labor Market

Public/Private Ventures is pleased to announce the release of a new report for workforce development practitioners who are seeking additional guidance about the complexities of connecting formerly incarcerated people to the labor market.

Going to Work with a Criminal Record offers tools to organize these efforts while also outlining how to avoid common mistakes. The resource includes tips on how to developing relationships with employers, parole officers, and the local child support enforcement agency.

The guide is based on lessons learned from the Fathers at Work initiative, a three-year, six-site demonstration funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to help young, noncustodial fathers achieve increased employment and earnings, involvement in their children’s lives, and more consistent financial support of their children.
