We believe that if someone is ready to turn their life around, they deserve a second chance. And we know that employment can be the difference between becoming a success story and returning to crime.
The Second Chance Project exists to change the stigma around those with a criminal history and demonstrate that Second Chance Employment is powerful, one voice at a time.
The Second Chance Project is an effort by Dave’s Killer Bread to start conversations, change perceptions and inspire businesses to hire people with criminal backgrounds.
Thank you for sharing your experience and giving voice to the transformative power of second chance employment. Together we’re helping people see the potential of the formerly incarcerated and the power of a job to create a positive impact in our work places, our communities, and our society.
The Second Chance Project website was built by talented incarcerated individuals within San Quentin State Prison under the leadership of The Last Mile, a nonprofit working to prepare incarcerated individuals for re-entry.
