Sarasota, FL- Project 180 Volunteers visit Desoto Annex Correctional Institution with their CEO Program. On Wednesday, October 11, 2017, Project 180 presented its future-focused original CEO Program to Desoto Annex prison inmates who are about to re-enter the workforce and adapt to life on the outside. This program is a unique workforce education program which takes CEOs, hiring managers and workforce agency specialists into the prisons to teach soon-to-be-released inmates how to find, apply for, interview for and retain a position in each CEO’s industry.

The volunteer participants in this recent program included:

  • Mike Gonzalez, Sales Manager, PeopleReady
  • Robin Cody, Career Development Facilitator, Goodwill Manasota
  • Jean Juchnowicz, President of Human Resources Simplified and Career Advice Simplified
