What is the unmet social or environmental need you intend to address?
Currently, workforce development training for people with criminal histories is not reflective of today’s needs. To address such a complicated and multifaceted criminal justice system requires the work of many. Re/version seeks to prepare incarcerated individuals to participate in a digital age economy. We will accomplish this work by providing technical software development training. This shift from menial labor will prepare people to transition from the prison system into a career that is transformative for their lives, family, and community.
What most excites you about participating in the Impact Entrepreneurship Fellowship?
I look forward to the process of exploration. I’m excited to build and meet other change makers, being a part of a like-minded community, and finding the soil (resources) to root myself in a journey that I know is so much bigger than me.
