Largest group of inmates graduates from training program
MADISON, Wis. — A job training program called Windows to Work is graduating its largest class of inmates from the Dane County Jail Wednesday.
The 17-week program seeks to increase employment among former inmates while decreasing their chances of offending again. Inmates learn problem-solving skills, financial literacy and how to put together a resume.
The program is a partnership between the Dane County Jail and the Dane County Workforce Development of South Central Wisconsin. It’s made possible by a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Twenty-four Dane County inmates will graduate Wednesday at 10 a.m.
