NRWC Reentry Certification
NRWC will be launching a reentry certification program for leaders and practitioners who are working with people who have been impacted by the justice system. The certification offers the field a baseline standard of practice that synthesizes over 20 years of research into successful reentry practices. In partnership with Alliance for Community and Justice Innovation (ACJI), NRWC will offer both a Reentry Specialist and a Reentry Leader certification. This certification framework is the first of its kind to offer reentry organizations a common set of principles, knowledge, and science driven tools which can support community driven innovations and the emergence of new and promising practices.
