Start Up Meeting and Action
A meeting took place on Friday April 23, 2010 to discuss the cost relative to state and regional structure in order allow a formal business plan to be developed. The conversation turned to a discussion of a pilot program and the need for a focus group. The assembly of logic models was also discussed. The plan is for the focus group to begin work in earnest in August.
The agenda for the meeting was as follows:
Regional and State business model enables business planning
CORI Show as a promotion tool
While the last 2 agenda items were not discussed the following was provided on 4/24 in response to the need for a focus group.
"The following is provided in order to summarize the ideas assembled thus far with respect to what US CORI could be. It is provided with the hope that it will help in the assembly of the focus group as well as future formal incorporation. Of course comments, suggestions and edits are anticipated and welcome.
- National non profit membership organization
- An online community and grassroots movement
- Service focus on the criminal justice record system as well as the challenges to re-entry
- Includes a separate youth and adult structure
- Includes a state and regional structure
- Legislative advocacy component
- Training component (Annual Conference, as well as local offerings)
With respect to the youth component I offer the following. The following is a list of some of the skill sets youth would learn in participating in the project.
Management - Youth would be placed in positions of responsibility in
the same national, regional and state structure that governs the
overall U.S. CORI project. Mentors, counselors or whatever such term is
designated would oversee the work of the youth.
Management Disciplines - Youth could work in a mentor or internship
program with the adults who manage core business disciplines like
Finance and Human Resources. Our focus on Education and creation of a
new paradigm in our correctional system should lead to opportunities in
the disciplines associated with education as well.
HTML - Basic html skills would be learned. There will in all
likelyhood be other technology skills learned.
