View the video to learn how SEEL is working to support returning citizens in becoming productive members of the energy efficiency workforce.
April is known as Second Chance Month, a time to focus on supporting those who have been previously incarcerated to re-enter society and become productive members of their communities. According to the National Institute of Justice, over 600,000 individuals are released from prison each year in the United States, and many of them face significant challenges when it comes to finding employment.
At SEEL we work to address this issue, uniting returning citizens seeking employment with hiring organizations. In doing so, we aim to advocate, promote, and support greater diversity within the local energy efficiency workforce.
Our impact can be seen in our many successful program participants, thanks to our partnership with Ameren Illinois and the Peoria Adult Transition Center of the Illinois Department of Corrections. We encourage you to watch our video and see all we’ve been able to accomplish throughout this program.
As we observe Second Chance Month, it’s important to recognize what we can do as individuals and as a community to uplift and support returning citizens. By investing in these individuals and providing them with the resources they need to succeed, we can help break the cycle of incarceration and create a more just and equitable society for all.
