Right Road Job Training and Placement Program (RRJTPP)

Second Chance Employment Program

The Right Road Job Training and Placement Program (RRJTPP) is a is a cognitive-behavioral, skills-building program which challenges inmates and returning citizens (formerly incarcerated) to change their beliefs and behaviors.  Through structured group discussions, the participants are challenged to examine how their behavior choices have been caused by their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. 


It is accomplished utilizing a 32-hour Transformed and Empowered Life Skills training curriculum that focuses on cognitive awareness, self-control, problem solving, and interpersonal skills development.  Following the classroom training, the returning citizen will have the opportunity to participate in 8 hours of job training and our “Best You” structured mentoring program that is designed to positively affect the social and behavioral outcomes of the returning citizen.   RRJTPP is a program that was developed in partnership with the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA).
