#6469 For many inmates at juvenile correctional facilities, looking ahead to freedom brings anxiety and doubt. This program illustrates the challenges that often await young offenders following incarceration and portrays teen inmates preparing to face the corporate world, their families, and themselves.
Overcoming illiteracy, building marketable work skills, and becoming familiar with employment counseling and job search techniques are some of the subjects explored.
The emotional side of leaving prison – including homecoming reunions with happy parents and siblings and the counseling that often accompanies those reunions – is also illustrated in depth.
