Getting the RAP Down: Employment Strategies for Jobseekers with Criminal Histories
Thursday, April 18, 2024 – 1-3pm ET

In this training, participants will learn concrete strategies to empower their participants through every step of the job search process, as well as legal aid and anti-discrimination resources targeted to assisting them and the clients they serve to successfully navigate the justice system and achieve self-sufficiency.
