Last Friday, June 22, eighteen instructors were certified to teach Roots of Success during a day-long training on Rikers Island — New York City’s primary jail, with an inmate population of around 14,000. The new instructors were added to the vibrant and quickly growing Community of Practice in New York, which already includes active teachers in a number of job training programs, career/technical high schools, youth programs,community colleges, apprenticeship programs, re-entry programs, government agencies and community-based organizations. Congratulations to our newest group of certified Roots of Success instructors!
