Pivot the Hustle: The RWU Professional Education Center and the Rhode Island Department of Corrections have launched an innovative and results-oriented program designed to help inmates garner skills for successful re-entry and employment upon release. The program, which reflects goals of the Raimondo administration and the Justice Reinvestment working group which was tasked with drafting recommendations for a data-driven approach to reduce corrections spending and reinvest in strategies to reduce recidivism. Called Pivot the Hustle- the program works with eligible inmates expected to be up for parole in less than a year to offer a portfolio of career readiness programs in addition to a cadre of individualized support services.  Its goal is to provide skill and career readiness support to eligible soon to be released male/female prison population to prepare them for employment and career paths that lead to self-sufficiency.
