The Re-Entry Self-Sustainability Pilot Initiative (RESPI) is a four-week, earn-as-you-learn workforce development program. Participants will be selected based on their eligibility and answers to the questions below.
This program is structured to provide the skills to gain stable and full-time employment, along with the tools to help participants successfully reintegrate into society.
