If you own a business or know someone who does, you can make a great difference in the lives of the men we serve. Opening the door of employment and giving a PEP graduate a second chance may be just the boost he needs as he starts transitioning back to the free world. PEP Graduates can have a positive impact on your business and your workplace; through participation in the Business Plan Competition, they all know how to set goals, take initiative, and achieve them. Many of our regular employers continue to hire other PEP graduates as they know they will make a difference by positively impacting their bottom line. There are more than 750 companies who have hired PEP graduates, many of whom have hired more than one graduate.
