Trainee Advancement Program (TAP)
It's very hard for many returning citizens to find employment.
CentrePeace awards a current CentrePeace trainee a 3-month position at CentrePeace upon release. This 3-month period allows them to secure living space and seek additional employment opportunities for long-term stability while earning a good wage. When released, time spent being unproductive and unfocused can be a danger to a successful reentry. The TAP program provides structure that allows them to begin earning an income as well as meeting their probation criteria. We also help in obtaining birth certificates, PA photo ID cards, social security cards, resume building and other assistance that will help them find permanent employment.
