Evaluating Program’s Impact on Reducing Unemployment and Recidivism Among Former Prison Inmates

Project summary

The Redemption Project (TRP) is developing—in partnership with a professional evaluator—a longitudinal study to measure the long-term impact of our employment mentoring & placement program for prison inmates. The program’s goal is to help inmates gain the skills, values, & meaningful employment needed to avoid reoffending & become responsible citizens. For each TRP Graduate, we aim to measure: job patterns following release, longevity in their roles, economic gains, & 5-year success rates in avoiding recidivism. Our ultimate goal is to determine TRP’s impact on reducing recidivism.
