Reentry Award

To join other national efforts to improve reentry outcomes, PbS annually provides Reentry Awards to help ease and support youths' transition from secure placement to the community.

First developed in honor of National Reentry Week, April 24-30, 2016, established by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, PbS has supported several youths across the country each year. The awards have been used to purchase household items such as linens and dishware, clothing appropriate for job interviews, a phone and first month’s rent on an apartment. As the developers of the national reentry measurement standards for youth programs and services, PbS is continually building its reentry knowledge and looking for ways to make reentry successful for all youths.
