I was really proud to read about these 14 men that had been incarcerated that also graced the stage to receive diplomas with the graduating class of 2019. These Norfolk City Jail inmates participated in a special program that, upon release, will place them in an occupation in the automotive industry.
These non violent offenders came twice a week for three days out of the week to receive training under a certified technician. These inmates are all 6 months within release from the correction system. It’s nice to see that they now have something to fall back on so that they can actually change their lives for the better.
The program will be undertaking new individuals in the fall. You can read more and follow up by clicking here.
