Project Restart is a collaborative effort comprised of several Atlanta Area nonprofit partners, a financial institution and other agencies working toward one common goal: To reduce recidivism through providing a second chance for success. This is accomplished through providing participants who have a criminal record the opportunity to complete a multi-week self-exploration and training program.
Upon participants completing the first phase of fundamental programming, each participant then commits to one of three pathways: Education, Employment or Entrepreneurship. After the second phase of programming is completed, participants will be matched with a mentor who will provide guidance and support. During the final phase of the program, participants have the opportunity to pitch for capital that will be used to finance their goals.
