Video: Aaron’s Story

Meet Aaron, one of our participants at Concordance Academy. As he shares his story, you’ll see how the Academy’s goal is to help “unmask” our participants and prepare them to face new opportunities as they progress toward who they want to be. Only when they are free of labels that undermine their potential and have the support of people who see them for who they truly are, do they have the best chance of moving forward.

Aaron’s story is a reminder that the community must come together in order to truly address the impact of reincarceration. We’re fortunate to see this support for our participants in action with Second Chance Employers like Pi Pizzeria.
