PERC is partnering with Defy Ventures, a nonprofit organization that provides entrepreneurship, employment readiness, and personal development training programs to men and women in correctional facilities across the United States.
PERC recognizes that many incarcerated people can achieve positive well-being, become successfully employed, and launch successful, legal entrepreneurial endeavors. This program will facilitate a 6 to 8 month in custody training that empowers individuals to become the CEO of their new life.
The curriculum, CEO of Your New Life provides entrepreneurial training, employment readiness, and other personal development tools to men and women in correctional facilities across the United States. The in-custody training concludes with a business pitch, where Entrepreneurs in Training (EIT) will be required to present their business idea for an opportunity to compete for grant funds to assist with starting their business.
