Unscripted: From Incarceration to Software Engineer

When Jason Jones was incarcerated, he never imagined that he would one day become a software engineer. Learning to code changed his life, and it was all thanks to The Last Mile, a nonprofit organization that helps incarcerated individuals prepare for successful reentry through technology and business training. In this conversation, we’ll explore the impact of rehabilitation programs, like The Last Mile, on both individuals and society at large. We’ll examine the issues with the American justice system, and explain how scaling programs like The Last Mile can have positive benefits for returning citizens, businesses, and communities.
