The problem we are trying to solve is increasing the employment rates of ex convicts.
The idea we have is to educate prisoners on how to be better equipped for their release. For example, having training on how to complete a resume, interview practices, offering proper interview attire, educating them on the different trade skills, hosting job fairs, and creating job portals specifically for people who have been recently released.
The beneficiaries are the people in prison who are near to their release date. Globally there are currently 10.35 million people in prison, with 2.2 million being in the United States.
