95% of incarcerated individuals eventually rejoin society. Incarceration often leads to major setbacks in a person’s career. A majority of those released are re-incarcerated within 5 years.

Reclassification is the process of transitioning from one military occupational specialty to another. At Project Reclass, we believe investing upfront in individuals who are working towards financial independence makes enduring improvements to our communities. We are a team of civic-minded industry professionals passionate about helping individuals striving for upward mobility to reclassify.

Career readiness is a significant hurdle when reentering society. Knowing how to navigate the job search process and prepare useful documents like cover letters and resumes is a crucial skill. Incarcerated people may be unsure how to present their strengths to employers and put their best foot forward in the career hunt. ReVision, our cover letter-focused workshop with accompanying curriculum materials, teaches writing skills and shares tips for job hunting as our answer to this issue.
