Reentry Simulations.


The Reentry Simulation is a participatory activity that seeks to raise awareness about the process of reentering the community from a correctional institution, and to educate participates about the barriers and challenges associated with reentry. This hands-on activity puts participants into the role of a reentrant where one must balance decisions regarding accessing social services, entering into the workforce, obtaining identification, and finding housing while simultaneously complying with supervision and managing limited resources.
