Working Today, for Tomorrow's Success.
This report considers the characteristics of individuals who participate in six major workforce development programs in Milwaukee, and quantify the prevalence of employment barriers, including low levels of educational attainment, lack of valid driver's licenses, and criminal backgrounds.
Although employment can play a critical role in reducing recidivism, research has shown that simply placing someone in a job is not a silver bullet for preventing reoffending. A foundation of research reveals effective strategies for reducing recidivism. These strategies include using science-based tools to assess individuals’ risk for criminal behavior and using that information to tailor services to their distinct needs (such as cognitive behavioral therapy to address antisocial thinking and behaviors). The Integrated Reentry and Employment Strategies white paper helps policymakers, system administrators, and practitioners collaboratively determine whether resources are focused on the right people, with the right interventions, at the right time.
This whitepaper analyzes the reasons why access to educational material online is critical to moving the United States forward in terms of economic development and academic attainment.
