Women’s Alliance March Meeting

Business Meeting: 10:00a
Program: 11:00a, followed by luncheon ($10)
Program: Second Chances: The Reentry Campus Program
Speaker: James Monteiro
The Reentry Campus Program works both within and outside the Adult Correctional Institutions of Rhode Island to ensure that adults in transition have an affordable, accredited postsecondary degree path that is integrated into the support systems needed upon release. The program strives to help currently and formerly incarcerated citizens chart a new course through education, mentorship, advisement, and successful social networks of their peers.
James Monteiro is the founder and director of the Reentry Campus Program. After dropping out of eighth grade and serving time in prison, James beat the odds by earning an Associate’s Degree in Psychology while in prison and, upon release, a Bachelor’s in Community Development. James won an Echoing Green Fellowship and is a 2018 Just Leadership USA fellow. He is also part of John Legend’s Unlocked Futures program and one of Rhode Island’s “15 to Watch” for his work in youth programs that address violence.
