June 11th Webinar: Making Second Chances Count: The Transformational Potential of Reentry Programs for Higher Education, Workforce, and Justice-Involved Adults

Upcoming: June 11th at 12 pm CT

Hear from Matthew J. Scott, Regional Education Administrator with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, about his work with adults in custody and the success he has seen with adults in custody as they receive education, job training, and job placement before their release, so they are positioned for success. Learn what re-entry looks like, how he has partnered with post-secondary institutions, employers, and workforce training organizations to create sustainable pathways to meet individual goals and address talent pipeline issues, and what steps you can take, no matter where you are, to support this often-overlooked population.

Matthew’s work demonstrates the importance of ecosystem coordination and regional approaches to working adult learner success - essential to CAEL’s mission.
