Success Inside and Out

The annual Success Inside and Out professional pre-release conference was held Saturday, March 5, at Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau. Just under 100 inmates attended, with about an equal number of community volunteers and professional staff present for the event, held in the facility’s gymnasium. The day included musical entertainment, a panel of former inmates, breakout sessions with local employers, treatment providers and advocates. The afternoon began with a fashion show where inmates modeled dress appropriate for a job interview or the workplace. Afternoon panels focused on education and training. Deputy Commissioner Carmen Gutierrez attended, along with Chief Justice Walter Carpeneti.
