Inside Out Network: Connecting Returning Citizens With Service Providers


We are helping transform reentry by connecting returning citizens and service providers through our revolutionary online platform. Think of us as the “eharmony of reentry”. Though we are based in Tucson, students will work remotely, and $300 stipends are available for ASU Criminal Justice student interns.

Potential Responsibilities

  • Identify reentry service providers, churches and ministries, and volunteers/advocates in Arizona and Illinois. Educate potential subscribers about the ION platform, demo the website, and encourage subscriptions.
  • Actively pursue leads for potential subscribers by phone, email, and Zoom meetings. Assist new subscribers to enroll in ION.
  • Help create online profiles for inmates by entering data from paper registration forms into the ION platform.
  • Interact and collaborate with a wide range of reentry service providers, various staff at the Arizona and Illinois departments of correction, regional reentry coalitions, ION volunteers, and other stakeholders.
