Welcome Back: Employment Pathways for Women Returning from Prison

Commitment by

Gina's Team

In 2015, Gina’s Team committed to train and place 48 women returning from prison in paid apprenticeships or jobs. Utilizing the already established Gina's ATHENA Team leadership program (GAT) as a screening mechanism, graduates of this program will be given the option to train in one of two tracks: 1) Entrepreneurial training to create self-directed business opportunities; or 2) sector specific on-the-job- training and certification to secure employment paying a living wage upon release. Upon release, women will receive weekly mentoring and check-ins to ensure they empowered and well supported in their new training or employment opportunity.
