95% of incarcerated individuals eventually rejoin society. Incarceration often leads to major setbacks in a person’s career. A majority of those released are re-incarcerated within 5 years.

Reclassification is the process of transitioning from one military occupational specialty to another. At Project Reclass, we believe investing upfront in individuals who are working towards financial independence makes enduring improvements to our communities. We are a team of civic-minded industry professionals passionate about helping individuals striving for upward mobility to reclassify.

Computer Networks are the backbone of the modern internet. The highly distributed and global nature of networking infrastructure ensures its longterm relevance in business, government, and telecommunication. Although there exists a high barrier entry today, our in-house learning platform, ToyNet, aims to increase accessibility of Computer Networking fundamentals through step-by-step, interactive learning modules.

ToyNet prepares learners for the CompTIA Network+ certification, allowing inmates to accumulate marketable skills while serving their prison sentence.
