Last month we brought together both our parent mentors and local principals to celebrate in the 2nd annual Principals Appreciation Brunch. The aim of the brunch has been to bridge the gap between principles, and our parent mentors, and ensure that our program serves as a benefit to existing practices. This allows us to provide a stronger, more equitable educational curriculum for our Englewood Youth.

“A lot of people leaving prison say, ‘I’m going home.’ But you don’t have a home. You’ve been locked up three, four, five years—you don’t have a home,” said Mark Mitchell, Associate Director of Teamwork Englewood, who was also formerly incarcerated.

Without employment, housing, or resources, individuals who are released from prison often end up at homeless shelters or are rearrested. That’s why organizations like Teamwork Englewood work to mentor formerly incarcerated individuals through its reentry programs.
