Beyond the Box Reentry Job Fair

  • Tuesday, May 29, 2018, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Ultimate Reentry Opportunity Initiative (URO) invites you to The Gino Bush Beyond the Box Reentry Fair. We are facilitating this event to engage the community in conversations about reducing recidivism in Tompkins County. URO wants to highlight the need for employers to understand the challenges formerly incarcerated persons experience in seeking employment, in addition to the benefits of recruiting and hiring this population. 

We are working closely with the Chamber of Commerce, the Tompkins County Worker Center, the Office of Human Rights and Mayor Myrick to develop a Beyond the Box certification process that will help move the community towards a more inclusive and equitable hiring practices. Our guest keynote speaker will be the President of Ithaca College, Shirley M. Collado.

Potential employers and service providers are invited to support this effort by reserving a table and providing a representative and information about your offerings at the event.

Admission is FREE!
