What We Do

Project Reset mentors justice-involved individuals into a life changing career in the skilled labor and trades.

Project Reset was created from the awareness of two growing concerns in the State of Nebraska. The first being the current workforce shortage in our skilled labor and trades industry and the second being the impact that a lack of a career path and the inability to make a living wage has on the recidivism rate of an individual involved in our overwhelmed criminal justice system.

Project Reset participants are assigned a mentor who assist them in navigating through the entire program and provides one-on-one case management. The mentor’s caseload size allows them to have daily contact with each participant to provide support and resources in a timely and seamless manner. At Project Reset, we partner with each participant that comes through our doors to build an individualized case plan to address their specific barriers and goals.

We have partnered with local Unions, Employers, and Federally Registered Apprenticeships to provide entry into paid skilled labor jobs with benefits for Nebraska’s re-entry population. It is Project Reset’s vision to provide tools and support to redirect an individual's path through education and skill development which will lead to employment in the skilled trades and labor industry.
