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.
