Community College of Philadelphia I Am More Reentry Engagement Program
The Community College of Philadelphia I Am More Reentry Engagement Program serves formerly incarcerated individuals through higher education. Educators at the college understand that one of the key barriers for community members with criminal convictions is a lack of access to educational opportunities, and they work to ensure that justice impacted people can pursue higher education degrees and advanced certificates that will help them reach self sufficiency and independent living. Participants in the program work directly with an assigned case manager to develop a plan for their educational goals. They also receive ongoing support through targeted programming and workshops, as well as social services that assist with developing health, sustainable relationships. Case managers can also connect individuals to social service programs in the community that will help meet their individual needs, including housing opportunities, vocational services and treatment support for those in recovery.
