Rules of Re-engagement


Get Connected offers an Invest In yourself... ASAP (Achieving Success After Prison) workshop, brought to you by GC815 Invest in Yourself programming for individuals who have experienced jail or prison. This workshop focuses on the de-incarceration process and educates participants on the "Rules of Re-engagement". The workshop is designed to introduce formerly incarcerated individuals to ways in which to re-engage within the community and make every minute upon release count.

II. Justice-system involvement a. Recently released from jail, prison, or/other detention facility (e.g., Cook County Jail, Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC), Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ) facilities, juvenile detention centers, or b. Prior arrest(s), charge(s), or conviction(s) for violent felonies (e.g., homicide, aggravated battery, armed robbery, weapons charges)

III. Previous victimization and trauma associated with community violence a. Recent victim of violence, or b. Family/friend of recent victim of violence
