Civic Engagement

2011

Jamira is organizing a series of “ExOffenders University” workshops, with the goal of engaging youth who are ex-offenders reentering society and working with them to reduce the likelihood that they become repeat offenders. Working with the City of Philadelphia’s ReEnter program, Jamira hopes to match youth participants with mentors to work with the youth on issues such as education, voting, and civic participation, professional development, etc.
