Memphis & Shelby County Office of Re-Entry -- Application MSCOR University

The Memphis & Shelby County Office of Re-Entry is now accepting online applications for MSCOR University (formerly known as Second Chance), Winter 2016 Term.
 
Memphis & Shelby County Office of Reentry (MSCOR) is a collaborative effort to aid returning citizens with the tools necessary to ensure their successful community reentry with family, employment and education. 
 
This collaborative consists of parole supervision from the Tennessee Department of Correction; case management from the Shelby County Division of Corrections; and soft skills training from the City of Memphis’ Second Chance Program.  In order to expand the services to all returning citizens regardless of the number and type of convictions, the Second Chance Program was enhanced to be called “MSCOR University.”
 
The classes and training offered through MSCOR University have proven to be beneficial in helping the student understand relationships and behaviors related to changing their status as a “labeled felon” to a respected and productive citizen. 
 
With this newfound self-accountability, the student will be better equipped to project confidence when applying for and functioning as a productive and valued employment. Enrollees will be eligible to participate in all services offered by MSCOR – healthcare, GED certification, Forklift certification, transportation passes, job fairs, etc. Completion of MSCOR University will show their dedication and commitment to improving their lives living with a conviction.
 
MSCOR University is taught on an array of tried and true life-coaching strategies.  MSCOR is a one-stop-shop hub with a mission “To help citizens returning from incarceration navigate a holistic network of community services designed to restore dignity and confidence while providing opportunities for individual and family success.”
 
Classes will be offered over a 4-month period beginning in February 2016. Potential students are required to reside in Shelby County, TN.  They must attend one Core Class per month and one Elective Class over the 4-month period for a total of five classes. At the completion of the Winter 2016 term, students will be invited to participate in a graduation ceremony to receive a Certificate of Completion recognized by many local employers.
