SOLUTIONS FROM THE YARD
A VOICES FOR A SECOND CHANCE PODCAst
One of VSC's visions for our clients is to have our returning citizens use their voices to elevate their lived experience for change, leading to VSC's Train Our Voices program. As a next step after completing the 33-week curriculum, three graduates committed to launching Solutions from the Yard (SFTY) podcast, a pragmatic discussion hosted by individuals who facilitate knowledge sharing on imprisonment and reentry.
Join hosts Charles Hopkins, Michael Dickerson El, and Dietrich Trent for Voices for a Second Chance’s Solutions from the Yard podcast. With the inaugural SFTY series launched in January 2023, the hosts will cover the many facets involving the impact of mass incarceration and the complexities of reentry. Discussion will center around but not be limited to trauma, homelessness, employment, mental health, and family dynamics. Our podcast will educate the listener on how to navigate the complexities of reentry and connect on existing challenges within the criminal justice system. Here, we will share authentic experiences with listeners on the impact of incarceration and navigating life after release and beyond.
Be on the look out every other Monday evening wherever podcasts are streaming, when we unveil a new episode. We look forward to our journey together as we discuss our solutions from the yard.
