Hire PEP Graduates

One of the biggest challenges facing a formerly incarcerated person is the inability to find a job. In fact, nearly 40-50% of ex-offenders are unemployed for more than 12 months after their release from prison. Unable to find work, many return to lives of crime.

Thankfully, this is not the case for graduates of PEP. Since May of 2010, every single PEP graduate who has worked with our re-entry team has found a job within 90 days of release from prison. In fact, the average time “from prison to paycheck” is less than 1 month!

How do we do this? With your help!

Hire PEP GraduatesSince May of 2010, every single PEP graduate who has worked with our re-entry team has found a job within 90 days of release from prison. By contrast, the average ex-offender has a nearly 40% unemployment rate after 12 months … yet 100% of PEP’s graduates are employed in the first three months.

In fact, the average time “from prison to paycheck” is only 24 days. Most of our graduates land a job within their first month!

This past  July 4th,  many Americans got to celebrate their  “freedom” that was earned by their forefathers before them. Also this past 4th of July, three recently released PEP graduates got to celebrate a different type of  “freedom” that they earned serving their time.  Freedom from the prison walls that have held them captive since they were 16 years old. These three graduates, now in their 20’s and one who is 36 are looking for work that will help them start a new life.  Though they had jobs in prison they have no practical experience in this new “free world” they are entering.  Their only work experience is from inside prison and this makes it difficult when looking for work.  They need your help to find what will be essentially, their first job. With that first job these men can build a foundation for “genuine freedom”.  Having said that let me introduce  them to you:
