This document investigates the employment rates of the Herman Toulson Boot Camp Pre-Release Employment Program in Maryland.
The Herman Toulson Boot Camp Pre-Release Employment Program offers prevention barriers for persons who may have an inclination to pursue a path of criminal behavior, but have not reached that point. The Program offers an Employment Resource Center for individuals with multi-barriers to employment opportunities. Thirty participants on probation and parole of the Pre-Release Employment Program were demographically matched to nonparticipants on probation and parole that were not participants of the Program. The data were obtained through a systematic analysis of the Boot Camp records. The purpose of the study was to determine what, if any, employment success was achieved by ex-offenders who participated in the Program compared with nonparticipants. The anticipation that the participants of the Program would influence employment rates and patterns was found to be inaccurate. According to the statistical analysis, findings indicated that there was no significant difference of rates of employment between those that participated in the Pre-Release Employment Program and those that did not. This study can be perfected through further research by addressing factors, such as motivational issues (desire to work, self-esteem, and job incentives). 4 tables
