Hiring Initiative for Re-Entry Empowerment

Sat August 20 @ 9:00 am | 5:00 pm

Free

HIRE is a community-based effort designed to provide pathways for formerly incarcerated individuals to access workforce development training and gainful employment. Participants can expect to find personal and professional skill-building opportunities and leave the 2-day event with either gainful employment or job training opportunities that provide stipends and lead to job placement upon completion.

This event serves as a bold first step to help reduce the recidivism rate among formerly incarcerated individuals to help them successfully reenter society. The HIRE event will serve up to 100 participants. During Day 1, participants will attend workshops focused on resume building, and best interview practices, and learn the soft skills necessary to finding and retaining gainful employment. On Day 2, employers and training entities will be hosting interviews and seeking to hire or enroll participants on-the-spot during the event.

The HIRE Event will provide participants with free transportation through bus passes or Lyft vouchers to help them get to and from the event. Lunch will be served on both days. Through a generous donation from Indeed, each participant will also receive a laptop computer, internet hotspot, and one year of free internet service upon completion of both days of the event.
