Interested in how Roots of Success is being used in correctional settings to prepare inmates for opportunities in the green economy? Then you won’t want to miss Dr. Raquel Pinderhughes give a talk on Roots of Success on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 at the 2nd National Symposium on Sustainability in Corrections.

Roots of Success is an empowering environmental literacy and job readiness curriculum for corrections and reentry programs that is helping institutions across the country achieve their sustainability goals and prepare offenders for employment opportunities in the green economy upon reentry. Dr. Pinderhughes will be talking about how Roots of Success helps institutions achieve their sustainability goals, reduce costs, educate offenders, and prepare them for employment upon release. She will describe, in detail, how the Ohio Central School System is integrating the curriculum into programs at Department of Rehabilitation and Correction facilities throughout that state.

This year’s Symposium will also include more than 25 workshops, two keynote speakers, and 20 vendors representing the spectrum of the sustainability market. Visit the GreenPrisons homepage for details, and to register today.
