Tools and resources to help job seekers with a criminal record explore careers, get training, and find a job.
The Former Offender Initiative provides resources to job seekers with criminal records to help them overcome the barriers toward employment created by a criminal record.
Each NCWorks Career Center provides services to former offenders. Career center staff ensure job seekers with a criminal record have the necessary resources to conduct an effective job search.
In addition to the services provided to all job seekers, former offenders have access to the following services:
Career centers also work with federal, state, and local providers of reentry services, including community- and faith-based organizations, and vocational rehabilitation centers.
In addition to the economic value of obtaining employment, a former offender who finds a job is three times less likely to return to incarceration than those who do not obtain employment.
The Craven-Pamlico ReEntry Program provides a support network for formerly incarcerated young men and women
