In 2003 the Philadelphia Prison System established the JOBS Project. The JOBS Project program offers therapeutic living environments in the Philadelphia Prison System as well as vocational training, job readiness life skills, discharge planning for inmates and transitional services for ex-offenders.
In the therapeutic living environments, inmates learn to live together in a non-hostile community atmosphere. The life skills workshops are offered by the staff, which includes anger management, victim awareness and drug and alcohol education.
The JOBS Project also offers case management services for inmates and job placement through our reentry partners. Some of the agencies that partner with the Philadelphia Prisons offer many different services.
The Pennsylvania Prison Society and Impact Services provides workshops, job placement and case for inmates and ex-offenders.
