Jobs On The Outside

Jobs on the Outside (J.O.T.O.) is a free comprehensive training program that prepares individuals with a criminal background to successfully obtain and keep a job. Without meaningful work and a supportive network, there is an increased risk of recidivism (relapse into former criminal behavior and imprisonment).
