THE SECOND CHANCE COMMITTEE
We started our Program at the ‘House of Justice’ in Harlem. Our mission is to give ‘Life Skill Workshops’™ to formerly incarcerated men and women to help them make a positive re-entry back into our community. Ms. Vanda Seward, Director of New York State Reentry Services and Ms. Detrel Howell, assistant Manager Reentry, began referring formerly incarcerated men and women to our Program in January 2012. Our Vision is to change the negative influence of ‘violent gangs’ and ‘prison life’ on the minds of formerly incarcerated men and women. This was accomplished by giving 'Life Skill Workshops'™ at the ‘National Action Network’ headquarters in Harlem. Participants learn the history of the Civil Rights Struggle from Rev. Sharpton.
The first ‘Life Skill Workshop’™ cycle was a success. Now, we are ready to Produce the 'Second Chance Reality T.V. Show' ™ . We need your help pulling young men and women out of the revolving door of the criminal justice system and giving them a Second Chance.
