    Correctional Adult Re-entry Education Employment and Recidivism Reduction Strategies (CAREERRS)

    CAREERRS works with correctional facilities to provide on-site services such as:

    • Occupational skills training
    • Work readiness training
    • Legal support services
    • Support services after release (housing, clothing & transportation assistance, medical and mental health services, etc.)
    • Job placement assistance

    CAREERRS focuses on establishing and enhancing education, vocational and job training programs to incarcerated individuals prior to their release from correctional facilities in Miami-Dade County.

    Each individual enrolled is assigned a Case Manager and Employment Specialist, who supports them in reaching their identified goals, both personal and professional. Upon release, individuals receive transitional support and job placement services.

    “We continue our efforts to reduce recidivism and increase self-sufficiency by giving justice-involved individuals a second chance.”

    CAREERRS is funded through the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance.
