My name is Barry Diamond & I am a released prisoner. Prior to prison I owned a business consulting company that taught companies how to work smarter not harder. For the past 2 ½ years, I have been teaching formerly incarcerated people how to get a job. I have discovered something very interesting. Some of them should not look for employment. The reason is that some of them should be self-employed. They have skills & walk to the beat of a different drummer. Prior to incarceration some earned good money at a skilled job while some were already in business for themselves. If we are to allow each & every person (including formerly incarcerated) to express their dreams, maybe the time is right to create an Entrepreneurial course exclusively for formerly incarcerated persons. Many organizations are struggling to find employment for them. With the economy still sagging & businesses reluctant to hire (especially people with a criminal past)a new direction must be taken.
I have created the first CT Reentry Entrepreneurial Course, exclusively for formerly incarcerated persons. In the past (for 3 years) I taught this same course as an evening adult education course at the local High School. Currently the course is being taught in Bridgeport at the Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport, 1100 Boston Ave., Bldg.5a, Bridgeport. See below for information:
