The Transitions Program offers offenders employability, money management, and financial literacy skills to prepare them for a successful reentry into their communities upon their release from the institution. The program teaches job-readiness, job search skills and other prerequisite skills needed for today’s competitive job market.

Through a series of modules, participants learn about community resources and programs that can assist them in their transition back into the community. The Transitions Program partners with the Division of Adult Parole Operations’ Community Transition Program to connect offenders with American Job Centers of California and social service agencies in their counties of residence to ensure access to employment and resources upon release. Each participant is provided with the basic tools needed to present themselves in a positive light to prospective employers, retain a job once hired, and manage their personal finances.
