Employment Workshop

Employment Workshop

The 22nd Class of the Prison Entrepreneurship Program will graduate on the afternoon Friday, December 12, 2014 (you can learn more about that event here). That day, these men will complete our 6-month Business Plan Competition and earn their Certificates in Entrepreneurship from Baylor University.

We will give them a few days to rest … but then we bring them back for their final event:

The Class 22 Graduate Employment Workshop
Friday, Dec 19, 2014 from 1:00p-5:00p
Cleveland Correctional Center near Houston, Texas
(Learn more and RSVP here)

At this important event, volunteers (i.e. YOU!) will conduct Mock Interviews with our graduates before they release form prison. This is a great way to prepare our guys for the daunting task of answering “the felony question” in interviews. Plus, it gives them one last chance to polish up their happy dances for when they do land a job.

Help us to maintain a 100% employment rate…. RSVP today!

Have you ever hired someone? Or are you the master of the one-on-one job interview?

If so, we need your help on Friday, June 13, 2014 from 1:00 – 5:00 at the Cleveland Correctional Center in Cleveland, Texas (about 45 minutes North of Houston)!

After our participants graduate from the business plan competition, we give them a week to relax … then focus them on the most critical next step of their transformation: securing immediate employment upon release. After they leave prison, we strongly encourage all of our graduates to secure a job and stabilize in the free world before launching their own business.

This final PEP event, The Employment Workshop, serves as the capstone of our in-prison initiatives. Volunteers offer “mock interviews” as fictional employers. A perfect fit with owner-operators and HR professionals, this event provides graduates with a chance to sell their real product… themselves!
