The Goodwill LifeLaunch: Ignite 2.0 Reentry Program serves young adults ages 18-24 who have criminal backgrounds.

Participants will complete eight weeks of job training before being placed in a Work & Learn program, where they will attend Bluegrass Community & Technical College (BCTC) to earn a nationally recognized certification, while simultaneously working with an employer partner to obtain hands-on experience.

The collaboration between Goodwill, BCTC and employer partners will assist in reducing recidivism and promoting employment readiness and education, while supporting the students to address barriers such as transportation, shelter, food, substance abuse and mental health.
