Welcome to the Justice Reskill community! We created our organization with you, the student, in mind. It is exclusively designed to help you travel the path from where you are at today to securing a rewarding career that pays you a salary above living wage working in the technical industry. As a student, you are starting a new journey of learning, growth, and exploration - in a new field, but likely similar to other achievements in your life. This journey is not an easy one, and it will require hard work, commitment, and passion at every step. Those who rise to meet the challenges on their path will be rewarded with a fulfilling and empowering new career in tech.
The Justice Reskill program is exclusively designed for the justice-involved community across America. We define justice-involved to include those who have experienced an arrest, jail, prison, or juvenile detention time, or who have received a suspended sentence or court-mandated diversion program. If this has been a part of your life experience and you are interested in securing a tech career, Justice Reskill is the program for you!
We’ve developed a number of learning paths for you to enter into the technical industry in a way that fits your unique skills and interests. Our goal is to help you secure an above-living-wage career in tech. Our current learning tracks include Software Engineering, Technical Sales, and Technical Recruiting. We are launching our Data Learning track soon.
At this point, you’ve invested time into learning new technical skills. You’ve built production quality websites and apps for our amazing clients. You can point to the lessons you’ve learned along the way. And now, our team and community is ready to help you launch your new career.

To meet the demand of our hiring partners and the tech industry in general, we are launching two new exciting learning tracks. By early Q1 of 2022, we will launch our Data track, and later in the quarter we’ll launch our Product Management track.
Community is a core value at Justice Reskill. Any justice-involved person in America can join our online community portal to access some of our resources and connect with us, 100% free of charge. For community members who are interested in landing a technical career, we offer the option to apply for one of our upcoming cohorts. Once accepted, you’ll have access to even more resources, such as our Slack workspace, additional mental health resources, and more tools to support you in your journey. And the community doesn’t end when you graduate -- we’ll stick with you as you launch your career and start to make your mark on the tech industry and the world.
Our apprenticeship program is designed to help our students gain real-world experience in the tech field. This experience is invaluable as it helps those who are new to the industry build their resume with high-quality projects, make valuable industry connections, and get a feel for what it’s really like to work in tech. This is a paid 12-month apprenticeship, with opportunities to work alongside our developers at JR Launch and with top-tier companies like soona, Zivaro, and more. We believe that our apprenticeship sets a strong foundation for a long-lasting, rewarding career in the tech field.
