Three inmates talk to an attendee at SCI Chester's Reentry Fair

On Sept. 12, SCI Chester held its annual Reentry Career Fair in the institution's gymnasium. The event was arranged and organized by Business Teacher James Hurst and the education department.

The highlights of the event included large regional vendors and employers including J.P. Mascaro & Sons, Flagger Force, Allan Myers, Citizens Bank and PA CareerLink. The event included colleges and reentry services such as Eastern University, Liberty Ministries, Second Chance and many more.

The Reentry Career Fair involved nearly 400 inmates networking with outside agencies, employers and services. All inmates left the event with extremely helpful information regarding opportunities for employment and other resources when they return to the community.

The vendors all commented on how smoothly the event ran, and they all plan on returning next year. Thank you to all staff that helped make the 2023 Reentry Career Fair at SCI Chester a huge success!
