Project Reclass develops technical, vocational skills in incarcerated veterans striving for upward mobility upon reentry into society.

Reclassification is the process of transitioning military occupational specialties. Our team of researchers, technologists, and educators is building a learning platform to deliver a computer networking curriculum. By preparing them for the CompTIA Network+ certification, we help these veterans make a transition of their own.

Our Vision

At Project Reclass, we believe that investing upfront in individuals working towards financial independence makes enduring improvements to our communities.

The vocational setbacks introduced by incarceration can be daunting, but we believe in second chances for those with the discipline and determination to break into a new career; members of our fully volunteer force also explore new career paths while actualizing the mission. We seek nuanced, holistic approaches to nontraditional education through this cross-discipline collaboration.
