Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction IPP Community Service

Southeastern Correctional Institution

Eligibility

Intensive Program participants who are classified as Level 1 and Level 2 who have an acceptable institutional adjustment may be eligible for the program at SCI.

Program Requirements

The SCI Community Service IPP offers eligible offenders an alternative to traditional prison confinement. A highly defined holistic process of supervision, education, and programming is employed which enhances the offenders' successful re-entry into society. The program capacity is 100. There is a minimum of 30 hours of program activity per week.

Core Program Components

The primary focus of the Community Service program is Restorative Justice. Each participating offender is required to attend a Community Restorative Justice Workshop. Upon completion of this workshop, the offender performs supervised community service. Community Service IPP participation provides the offender an opportunity to enhance his work skills through service to local non-profit organizations and agencies. In addition, community service makes the offender accountable for his behavior and provides an avenue to make amends for the harm he has caused.

Secondary program focus will consist of the following:
  • ABE Classes
  • GED Completion
  • Transitional Education (TEP)
  • Computer Literacy
  • Substance Abuse Recovery/Relapse Prevention
  • Effective Parenting
  • Values Clarification
  • Decision-making Skills
  • Resume Writing
  • Marketable Employment Skills Development

Offenders may also obtain certifications in modular furniture installation, factory shipping/receiving, food service safety, and commercial/residential lawn care services. Each offender will have a portfolio that documents their training, work-experience and their up-to-date resume.

Continuing Care
