Please join Thrive DC in celebrating the launch of our new Gold Standard Business Network (GSBN). We created GSBN to offer to our clients who are returning citizens. This program creates a network of businesses in the DC area committed to helping these returning citizens rejoin the workforce after a period of incarceration. These opportunities will allow them to successfully reintegrate into their respective communities. Through employment, GSBN will do the following: reduce recidivism rates, decrease neighborhood crime, and promote economic stability.
As our Executive Director Alicia Horton stated, “Tapping into a pool of dedicated, eager, and ambitious applicants can only help businesses thrive.” Kimberly Gray, Thrive DC’s Re-entry Program Manager, spearheaded the program by reaching out to local companies and launching the initiative in September. Through this program, Kim hopes to break cycles of recidivism and rebuild lives.
Thrive DC looks forward to working with this group of companies to help give our reentry clients access to employment opportunities that will help to change their lives. Additionally, f your company would like to join the GSBN, click here to apply.
