This program illustrates the challenges that often await young offenders following incarceration and shows teen inmates preparing to face the corporate world, their families, and themselves. Overcoming illiteracy, building marketable work skills, and becoming familiar with employment counseling and job search techniques are some of the subjects explored. The emotional side of leaving prison—including homecomings with elated parents and siblings and the counseling that often accompanies those reunions—is also illustrated in depth. Follows educational and program recommendations provided by the National Center on Education, Disability and Juvenile Justice.
