Back to Reality Program
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
The Back to Reality program, located in Milwaukee, WI, focuses on helping men/women ex-offenders as they re-enter society through the teaching of Job Readiness/Retention Skills and Life Enhancement Skills. Through strong support and the building of an individualized plan that covers the first year of release, we aim to provide these men/women with the proper tools and skills they need to obtain employment, retain employment and rebuild the cities depleted talent pool with men/women who need a chance to prove their worth.
Back to Reality is a 4-week long program where the men/women attend class 2-days a week focusing on the following topics:
- Resume Prep
- Interview Practice/Prep
- Soft Skills
- Health/Relationship Building
- Transitional Thinking
Upon completion of the 4-week program we offer continuing support through an additional nationally recognized curriculum that will continue for another month and follow-up classes for at least 6 months where the participants will be required to attend two follow-up sessions a month.
The vision of Back to Reality is to reduce recidivism and ultimately eliminate crime. By providing the essential tools and skills as well as helping to repair the character of the men/women and rebuilding their confidence in their abilities, we believe this is an attainable goal.
