Mentor Program Design and Development Materials
The Portland Partners Re-Entry Initiative (PPRI) is a collaboration between SE Works, Volunteers of America, Central City Concern, and YWCA of Greater Portland. PPRI is dedicated to helping people successfully re-enter the Portland community after incarceration by increasing their access to employment, education and support services. Funded by the United States Department of Labor, the program is one of 30 demonstration projects across the nation.
Working in partnership with local, state, and federal community justice agencies, PPRI provides 200 participants per year with the supports they need to build new lives. Services include pre-employment training, career exploration and planning, access to vocational training and education programs, support services, and mentoring. When additional supports are needed, we may also connect participants to housing, mental health counseling, and drug and alcohol treatment.
