The Broward County Reentry Coalition’s Employment and Education Subcommittee assists returning citizens with resources to help them find meaningful opportunities to enjoy a fulfilling career.

In addition to providing information and referrals for GED, college, vocational training, licensing and certification, this subcommittee provides referrals to companies looking to hire, and conducts employment resource fairs, where candidates can meet one-on-one with employers.

The Subcommittee also educates companies on the many government incentives to hire a returning citizen. There are substantial tax credits available, such as the Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit and employers who hire felons can also be eligible to obtain a free fidelity bond funded by the federal government.
