This webinar, from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) GAINS Center, will explore how providing workforce development programming and linkages to meaningful employment opportunities are essential in helping individuals to overcome the barriers to long-term job retention and reducing the risk of recidivism. The event will also highlight the need to support individuals in creating a career path that will lead to long-term success.

This webinar will feature two reentry programs that provide support to individuals reentering the workforce following incarceration across rural and urban areas. These program presentations will cover the importance of workforce development for individuals who are reentering the community, with an emphasis on working towards long-term employment and establishing a career, as well as, how reentry programs can create relationships and build a network of potential employers for participants.
