Better Together hosts Nationwide Day of Second Chances April 29
By: Better Together
Every year, more than 650,000 Americans are released from prison and faced with challenges for re-entering the workforce. Better Together created a Day of Second Chances to help people overcome barriers to employment, such as incarceration, by bringing churches, volunteers, businesses and nonprofits together to host job fairs across America.
"Better Together is a firm believer in second chances and showing grace to anyone seeking economic stability for a better, purpose-driven life," said Megan Rose, CEO of Better Together. "In the wake of Covid-19, struggling Americans need work more than ever. Our team is committed to finding solutions and restoring hope for the second annual Nationwide Day of Second Chances."
Hosted by church partners and job coaches nationwide, the Second Chance Job Fair will feature employers around the country who are prepared to interview job seekers. The Nationwide Day of Second Chances will be hosted in-person on Thursday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Participating church locations include:
To date, Better Together has helped more than 32,000 job seekers connect with employment opportunities through church-based job fairs across 20 states. As a result, two-thirds of job fair attendees get a job interview, and one out of four receive a job offer on the spot.
The Nationwide Day of Second Chances job fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 29. To find an in-person event near you and register online, visit BetterTogetherUS.org/
