Higher Education For Justice-Impacted Individuals

This project presents recommendations for expanding opportunities for justice-impacted individuals in the Virginia Department of Corrections, jails, and detention centers throughout Virginia. Through the development of a multi-module Canvas course, information sharing will be widely used to support the training of instructors and other service providers and act as a one-stop shop for career pathways resources.
