ABSTRACT
At the 131st Congress of Corrections in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in August, 2001, the American Correctional Association went on record endorsing an ambitious policy recommendation for the re-entry of offenders in community. One of the recommendation is to provide information and assistance to offenders to gain employment upon release, such as pre-employment readiness training, job identification, retention skills training and job placement services. The policy recommended a serious review of essential support services for offenders during prison period and after release.
