Project Reclass develops technical, vocational skills in incarcerated veterans who are striving for upward mobility upon re-entry into society.

Computer Networks are the backbone of the modern internet. Expertise in this field takes decades to master. The distributed nature of networking infrastructure (both hardware and software) prevents drastic design changes from being made quickly.

95% of incarcerated individuals eventually rejoin society.
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 that by investing upfront in individuals who are working towards financial independence, we can make enduring improvements to our communities.

Incarceration often leads to major setbacks in a person’s career, and starting over can be daunting. The longterm marketability of computer networking skills allows incarcerated individuals to accumulate knowledge while serving their prison sentence. Our learning platform prepares individuals for the CompTIA Network+ certification.
