Participant Graduation

SAVE THE DATE: December 3, 2022
JCPenney Conference Center at the University of Missouri-St. Louis

Join us on Saturday, December 3rd for our Participant Graduation ceremony as we honor our participants who have completed the program and celebrate their accomplishments.

On average, Concordance participants spend approximately 18 months moving through the five phases of the Concordance Re-Entry program. From pre-release programming through the full-time employment phase, each participant’s journey focuses on healing from trauma, reuniting with family, and securing meaningful and family-sustaining employment. At the completion of the program, each participant is honored at a graduation ceremony where friends, family, and community members can celebrate their many accomplishments. Please join us at this year’s graduation as we honor our 2022 Concordance graduates!

Please RSVP to Sivan Fernandez at or 314-396-6045.

Last year, we hosted our 2021 Participant Recognition Ceremony. We honored 70 participants, including 23 graduates of the program. Check 2021 Participant Recognition Ceremony highlight video and full live stream of the ceremony below!
