In collaboration with OIC of America, throughthe U.S. Department of Labor, Philadelphia OIC offers services to individuals over 18 years-old who have had contact with the criminal justice system and reside in designated high-poverty, high-crime communities in the Philadelphia area.

Philadelphia OIC’s Young Adult Reentry Program serves 18-24-year-olds who have or have had some form of criminal justice involvement. Participants receive access to free educational and vocational training through the Community College of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia OIC’s Adult Reentry Program serves individuals over the age of 18 who are currently incarcerated in local Philadelphia and state correctional facilities. * Individuals must be within 20-180 days of their release date and scheduled to return to designated areas in the city of Philadelphia.

The goal of our reentry programs is to help justice involved individuals make successful transitions back to the community. Program participants are provided with the support they need to overcome the many challenges faced upon their release from incarceration. Supportive services include the following:

  • Educational training such as High School Diploma, HiSET, or GED.
  • Vocational training certifications in fields such as Culinary Arts, Construction, Manufacturing,     etc.
  • Career readiness and job placement assistance in the selected career pathway.
