On Friday the 21st of July 2017, Intract managed a stall at South Australia’s first ever career expo at The Adelaide Women’s Prison.
Currently, 46% of offenders are back in the correctional system within two years of release. Intract Australia, under the leadership of Intract South Australia’s General Manager, John Briggs, is trying to break the re-offending cycle, by providing to former offenders job opportunities that are normally not available to those with criminal records.
“As far as I’m concerned once they’ve finished their time they deserve a chance like everyone else,” said John Briggs speaking at the event.
