  • In the March 2009, the PEW Center’s, One in 31, the Long Reach of American Corrections “The laws passed in 80s &90s increased incarcerated pop. reached 2.3 million & 1 in 100 adults was in prison or jail.” <br /> “… # on probation or parole 5 million plus, up from 1.6 million just 25 years ago. <br /> 1 in 45 adults in U.S. now under justice supervision & combined with those in prison and jail, a stunning 1 in every 31 adults, or 3.2 percent, is under some form of correctional control.” <br />
  • For some ex-offenders, entrepreneurship offers new opportunities for successful reentry <br /> This approach is supported by research describing the benefits of self-employment for this growing population. <br /> Reducing recidivism and empowering ex-offenders to start their own businesses to create their own jobs is a great strategy that is being well received across the US. Discussions and planning are ongoing across the U.S. <br />
  • Research has documented entrepreneurship and self-employment as benefits to disadvantaged and hard-to-serve individuals. <br /> … As more and more people return from prison, many lacking educational and vocational skills necessary to compete in today’s labor market, entrepreneurship may represent a means of capitalizing on an underutilized pool of human resources.” <br />
  • While researchers agree that self-employment may not be a viable option for many individuals leaving prison, the mere fact of the exposure to entrepreneurship training can factor in successful reentry to the community. <br /> “A small percentage may have the resources and mindset to use entrepreneurship as the key to their successful reintegration, either as their sole form of employment, or in addition to a traditional job. <br />
  • “For many, because entrepreneurial thinking is infused with the philosophy of empowerment, exposure to entrepreneurial training will reshape their perspective on their role in society. <br /> These individuals may never become entrepreneurs themselves, but will use their entrepreneurship training to improve their performance as employees and to proactively engage with their families and communities.”. <br />
