Success Begins Here

It all begins with a rigorous pre-screening; there is no automatic enrollment in the program simply because you are an ex-offender. All applicants undergo a thorough background check, drug testing, and a sophisticated risk assessment tool all designed to establish their suitability for the training program.
Participants are involved in three levels of the program:

1st - The Student Phase - After being accepted, participants will spend 8 weeks with us in the classroom preparing themselves for the work world.

2nd - The Transition Phase - After graduating from class, the participant moves from the classroom training to on the job training which provides participants both work history and employment experience.

3rd - The Employment Phase - At this point a participant is ideally fully employed and maximizing their economic opportunity.

The EcOp training includes soft skills, personal coaching, and preparation for certification from the National Career Readiness Certificate Credential program that demonstrates that individuals have the core employability skills needed for success in the workplace.
