STRIDE winner of the 2012 National Bellwether Award for Workforce Development

The American Dream

STRIDE is a unique, state funded transitional support workforce development program operating within the Quinebaug Valley Community College division of Community Engagement. This program serves a targeted group of incarcerated men and women, both pre- and post-release, from four correctional facilities in Connecticut:

  • Bridgeport Correctional Center, Bridgeport, CT
  • Niantic Annex Correctional Institution, Niantic, CT
  • York Correctional Institution, Niantic, CT
  • Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center in Uncasville, CT

STRIDE is designed to provide participants with job readiness, job search, job placement, and job retention skills and support that will promote access to higher paying, personally relevant jobs.

Participants receive one-on-one counseling and group support as well as pre and post-release case management services. In addition, community transition plans address barriers and needs regarding housing, transportation, clothing and family reunification.

STRIDE is made possible through the collaborative efforts of Connecticut's visionary state legislators and the CT Departments of Correction, Labor, and Social Services Welfare to Work Initiative.
