More about the Emerge Career Program:

To date, 87% of Emerge’s students have successfully graduated, and 100% have obtained employment paying on average >$60K / year.

We recently worked with CT State Sen. Will Haskell, MTAC and CBIA to pass SB334 in CT creating a prison-to-employment pipeline for the trucking industry. Our technology is already being adopted by  Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Our ask:

We’re working with the Maine Department of Labor to bring our innovation to Maine. We’re looking for trucking companies interested in hiring our entry-level drivers.

Research shows  that second-chance employees are more motivated and loyal. Moreover,  second chance employers can also recoup wages through the Work Opportunity Tax Credits ($2,400 – $9,600) for every new hire.
