Using Entrepreneurship To Help Reentry After Prison
September 24, 2020
One in three formerly incarcerated people in Indiana will find themselves back in prison within three years of being released. One of the leading factors of recidivism is unemployment. A reentry program in Indianapolis aims to help by teaching people how to start and grow a business.
Today we learn about the Reentry Entrepreneurship Development Initiative to find out why it was created, and what some of its participants have gained from it.
