Those schools train students for a variety of technical positions, including automotive technician, computer technician, hairstylist, medical assistant, truck driver, and many other fields.

FII will help increase capacity by researching advocacy activities for program participants, and develop tools to help ex-offenders meet their goals of successfully reintegrating into society and decrease poverty by becoming productive, law-abiding contributors in their community.
