TWO bridges the gap between employers and justice impacted jobseeker to reduce the labor demand of skills-based careers.

THE WAY OUT also provides the Justice Involved Job Seekers additional services and technologies to help them integrate into their new roles successfully. THE WAY OUT accomplishes this through a robust anti-bias employment platform and self-learning mobile app. TWO also offers customized and sustainable 2nd-chance hiring programs, ongoing training and support for employees and transportation to and from work. First off, their platform creates a blind, contextual profile of the JIJS, that initially removes name, address, history of incarceration and any other information that may cause immediate biases in a potential employer; while positively considering personality traits, personal accomplishments and additional trainings and certifications. Next, JIJS are screened for additional support needs, aligned with reentry service providers to help address their training and support needs, and then matched with a job. Lastly, all progress is tracked and managed via the self-learning mobile app. and dashboard. For further information, please contact The Way Out directly.
