Location: Virtual

NahShon Jackson who is serving as Director of Community Outreach for Network Support Services, Inc. will speak of the program he works at, his life experience, and how he aims to inspire social change and make a difference in so many lives.

As a participant in the Network Program at Otisville Correctional Facility, NahShon Jackson experienced two years of being in a safe place that allowed for the confrontation of mistakes and the acceptance of responsibility for life. Although NahShon’s positive change did not originate with Network, the program provided a space to set goals and practice behaviors conducive to successful living upon release and maintaining a disciplined lifestyle. This transformative process, facilitated by Network, involved examining attitudes and values and learning to cope with stress.
