HOW IT WORKS
PRISON TO PROSPERITY
The Prison to Prosperity program is focused on job creation for formerly incarcerated individuals that have been affected by the criminalization of cannabis. Harvest and LPP's "Prison to Prosperity" pipeline of talent will focus on facilitating reentry of individuals impacted by the war on drugs back into society, through workshop training programs, with the goal of providing employment opportunities at Harvest locations nationwide.
The program will offer vocational training opportunities and educational programs specific to the cannabis industry for those who continue to be disadvantaged by a criminal record. The program will begin with a pilot project working in tandem with local reentry organizations in California and will roll out nationally at a later date.
FOOD TRAINING SCHOLARSHIPS
Our partner, SCS Global Services, is providing scholarships for professional food safety training certificate courses. The cannabis edibles market growth is estimated at $1.4 billion by 2022, and these courses will help these students stand out of the crowd.
