Hi, everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you a link to the White House press release that includes the Take Charge Guide, a new educational guide for re-entering adult learners: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/04/26/fact-sheet-biden-harris-administration-expands-second-chance-opportunities-for-formerly-incarcerated-persons/https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.whitehouse.gov%2Fbriefing-room%2Fstatements-releases%2F2022%2F04%2F26%2Ffact-sheet-biden-harris-administration-expands-second-chance-opportunities-for-formerly-incarcerated-persons%2F&data=05%7C01%7CMargaret.Patterson%40safalpartners.com%7Ca2481677da46448a89c008da29e76391%7Ce1f1c3372599475395d84853fb4b179c%7C1%7C1%7C637868371051850802%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=qYQc1xxVujwtdPJXEDLH6OOAuHi9B8hMkNtEjS9JBgo%3D&reserved=0

Our RTI colleagues, Laura Rasmussen Foster, Michelle Tolbert, and I revised this guide last winter – and it was truly a joy to work on it, especially since we knew it would give a lot of re-entering adults some solid info to consider as they plan ahead for what is next outside the walls.

We were happy that the White House featured it for Second Chance Month, too!

You have to scroll way down… to “developing and amplifying educational opportunities” and it’s the second link in the last bullet, copied below:

Please feel free to share the links freely with your networks. Thanks!
