Join us to hear from a graduate of the Turning Leaf Project, a nonprofit organization that helps local men at high risk of incarceration prevent reoffending, using intense life skills training, job placement, and more. We'll hear candid stories of what life is like in prison, the difficulties of re-entering society and the positive impact Turning Leaf has on its students. The United States has the highest per capita incarceration rate in the world, at 724 per 100,000 people The cost for one person to re-enter prison and serve one year is $20,000 - $30,000. An estimated 68% of released prisoners are arrested within 3 years, 79% within 6 years, and 83% within 9 years.
