A growing number of community and business leaders have recognized that second chance hiring results in safer cities, boosts the local economy, and strengthens the social fabric of our communities. As a result, many employers are now reviewing their hiring practices and looking for ways to include justice-involved individuals in their organizations.
With this in mind, the Georgetown Pivot Program aims to make second chance hiring a more commonly accepted practice, by providing organizations that have an interest in second chance hiring with the opportunity to work with highly qualified returning citizens.
Employer partners can work with Pivot in two ways: by hosting a fellow for a 15-week spring internship, and by hiring a graduate of the program into a permanent position.
