RACE1 Workforce Reentry Partnership

RACE1 Workforce Reentry Partnership

“What skills do offenders need to return to society and not reoffend”? That’s the question that Lt. Rebecca Baird of the Duffield Regional Jail (DRJ), Scott County Commonwealth’s Attorney Andy Johnson, and other local partners are finding answers to. The end goal of the partners is to ensure community safety by having former offenders enter employment and exit the justice system.

We want to extend a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Kristin and our friends at Mount Rogers Regional Adult Education Program!

Read Kristin’s inspiring feature from the Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center: 

“Invincible!
Before receiving her GED® credential, Kristin Barham had not told anyone that she did not have a high school diploma. She had just completed her real estate courses and was ready to apply for her license when she realized that she had to have a GED® diploma before applying. Kristin realized she would need to tell her husband that she had not completed high school. Her husband not only was understanding about her situation, but also turned out to be her biggest supporter through the GED® process.
 
High school was difficult for Kristin. She lost focus on schoolwork and fell behind due to the lack of understanding in her coursework. Before leaving high school, she had acquired her CNA certification and was able to find employment. After working as a CNA and lab technician supervisor, she realized she wanted more for her family and decided to pursue a career in real estate.
 
Kristin joined the Mount Rogers GED® class at the RAE Center in Carroll County where she met Sue Dickens. Kristin described Sue as an angel and the best teacher she had ever had. Sue was patient with Kristin and made sure she understood the content before moving on to the next subject. Sue even met with Kristin outside at her house during the COVID-19 pandemic so they could social distance and so that Kristin would not fall behind in preparing to take her GED® test.
 
With hard work and support from Sue and her husband, Kristin was able to obtain her GED® credential. She is now ready for her real estate state board test and hopes to get started in a real estate career as soon as possible.
 
Kristin says she has more confidence and self-esteem now due to earning her GED® diploma. She feels as if she is INVINCIBLE and that the weight of the world has been lifted off her shoulders.”

Did you know that a mother’s reading skill is the greatest determinant of her children’s future academic success, outweighing all else? When we teach the parent, we reach the child 📚 

The National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week seeks to raise awareness about the need for and value of adult education and family literacy. We’re celebrating all of our adult learners this week who are continuing to be the first teachers for their own children!
