  Returning Citizens and Workforce Development Review
With Special Focus on Detroit

Stephanie Awalt, Jaylen Harris, Meghan Thorndike
AmeriCorps VISTA, Michigan Nonprofit Association
This review synthesizes research regarding the resources for persons returning to the workforce from prison. The focus of the review is workforce development opportunities for returning citizens in the city of Detroit, both during incarceration and after release. It also includes information regarding the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ban the Box campaign. The campaign advocates for changing unfair hiring practices and removing questions about prior convictions from job applications. It resulted in the City Council enacting a Ban the Box ordinance in Detroit in 2010. In addition this research team explored how the stigma that accompanies returning citizen status can create additional barriers to finding and maintaining employment. Finally the review supports how important ancillary services are for returning citizens in order for them to sustain employment, one of the main goals of workforce development efforts.
