Lunch & Learn: Second Chances
If you are familiar with our Breakthroughs Summit, then you know one of our three key issues is re-entry for ex-offenders.
Each year, close to 3,000 inmates return to Palm Beach County from years in jail or prison. Without a connection to the community, as many as two-thirds of them will get into trouble again and end up behind bars within three years. They need jobs as they reintegrate back to society. The challenge is, most employers aren’t aware of many ex-offenders’ hard worth ethic and dedication to their jobs.
This Lunch & Learn will be focused on this issue, with panelists knowledgable on the subject and eager to make a change.
