How It Works

How it Works

This program matches employers with qualified applicants that have been discharged from a TDCJ facility. While in prison, offenders gain work experience that is often applicable to jobs outside of prison. Some offenders receive vocational training and certification while some offenders earn Associate’s, Bachelor’s, and Master’s degrees.

Employment is an extremely important factor in helping an ex-offender get back on their feet. TDCJ has full-time staff working hard to match employers with parolees that have the skills and experience they are looking for.
