Apprenticeship Preparation Program

“The APP gave me hope. It made me realize that the person I was, wasn’t really me. And it showed me a different path.”

Ramon knew that a life of crime wasn’t for him after getting out of prison, but he didn’t know where his life was heading. Luckily, he had support from his family and a parole officer who wanted to see him succeed. He got connected to the APP, and started expanding his options. Ramon says that the program gave him confidence and encouraged him to come out of his shell through life skills sessions and job development. Now that he’s an APP graduate, Ramon says his top priority is to help out his parents, and start a family of his own. He also hopes to pursue his passion for soccer
