If you work with individuals returning to their communities from incarceration, you know the relationships you develop with participants – and those you help participants develop outside of your organization – matter.
Many programs recognize the power of “social capital” – or the value that arises from relationships – in achieving program outcomes. However, it can be hard to develop strategies to increase participant connections and track how they contribute to program outcomes. This virtual training series for managers of programs working with individuals with criminal records will:
• Provide an overview of social capital and describe why it can be so valuable to increase the social capital of individuals with criminal records;
• Offer concrete examples of ways programs across the country are working to develop and foster relationships for this population and the outcomes they are seeing as a result; and
• Explore ways and considerations for measuring social capital and relationships in programs.
