Hire a PEP graduate

  • There are more than 750 companies who have hired PEP graduates, many of whom have hired more than one graduate.

  • Many organizations recognize PEP for the quality of our results and the ROI the program consistently delivers.

  • We are pleased that PEP ranked as a finalist for the prestigious Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.

  • There are also tax credits available from the IRS for hiring an ex-felon, and we would encourage you to review and consider if this might apply to your business.

Want to become a volunteer?

Do you have a specific business skill that you would like to share with our men? Perhaps you have a leadership or communication topic that you are passionate about…or a life lesson that you believe is important for them to know. If any of these are true for you, then we invite you to join us as an eSchool teacher.

Your willingness to volunteer has an incredible impact on the men in eSchool and plays a major role in the success of eSchool.
