A new Re-Entry Job Center, located inside Tipton Correctional Center, will begin operation later this year. The Re-Entry Center will officially open its operations Oct. 2. The center is a joint venture between the Central Workforce Development Board and Missouri Department of Corrections. Among the services offered to those released from prison within six months are job search activities, résumé creation, training research, interviews with potential employers, and various other employable skills. The CWDB’s Missouri Re-Entry Division already offers support services like those to be offered at the Re-Entry Center outside of prisons — the office in the Tipton Correctional Center will be the first of its kind in Missouri.
