The MI released our latest resource: the Second Chance Hiring Toolkit for Local Communities. Through interviews with employers, partners, and local stakeholders, as well as a review of other efforts across the country, the MI developed the toolkit to support local leaders– or “hub organizations”– to design and implement multi-employer second chance collaboratives in their region. The intended audience for this toolkit includes state and local manufacturing associations, chambers, and other locally-based organizations to build and implement a place-based second chance employment pilot program. Employers can also reference this toolkit for direction on how to get started with their own second chance hiring journey.
