Open the door to the endless career possibilities that lie ahead for you. Educate and open your minds to the possibilities that are available when a person has an education and advanced training. Encourage love ones to establish goals and demonstrate responsibility NOW that will benefit them in the future. Look forward to your future and have aspirations, hopes, and dreams!

It’s never too late for you to choose different paths to continue your education. One path is to earn a certificate, degree, or diploma from a career college or technical school that will train you for a specific career, trade, or profession. Those schools train students for a variety of technical positions, including automotive technician, computer technician, hairstylist, medical assistant, truck driver, and many other fields.

The Re-Entry Services Program is a program dedicated to the formerly incarcerated or any individual with a criminal conviction who may need help with finding educational and employment opportunity leads. 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.
