Most ex-offenders are ill-prepared for employment and virtually unable to re-acclimate themselves back in the work world. Many lack the understanding of how to obtain and retain employment or how their persona can affect employer perceptions. KickStart is a program that offers ex-offenders assistance in improving social skills, attitude, and skills necessary to seek, acquire and retain employment. The positive impacts to the community resulting from a productive, tax-paying employee versus a return to incarceration is immeasurable Ex-offenders receive instruction in everything from grooming and appearance to developing a positive mental attitude and establishing goals. Assistance is also given on completing job applications and searching for employment. KickStart also focuses on employer thinking, what they want to know, how to avoid pitfalls and how to prepare for difficult questions. Participants attend workshops and also receive resource packets.
