“Roots of Success is the foundation of Osborne’s Green Jobs Training Program, enabling our staff to effectively prepare men and women who have been in conflict with the law for productive lives and economic self-sufficiency. In 2011, 64% of students who completed Roots of Success were placed in employment, a phenomenal result in an economy where even individuals with strong work histories and no criminal record are remaining unemployed for long periods. Of those placed in employment, 93% remained employed after 30 days, 78% after 90 days, 70% after 180 days and 51% after a full year with average wages of $13.00/hour. We would not have been able to achieve these results without Roots of Success.”
