Iowa’s prison population is on the rise, fueled by many factors including an increase in recidivism. A successful reentry into community is much more likely when offenders receive support both during and after serving their prison sentence. Kyle Horn of America’s Job Honor Awards will discuss Iowa’s current incarceration and recidivism situation, highlighting his program and the approach it takes in assisting Iowans to thrive post-incarceration.
Kyle Horn is committed to helping all people achieve their potential in the workforce — including those in disadvantaged circumstances. After several years in the staffing and recruiting industry, he stepped away from his corporate career to launch America’s Job Honor Awards: A nonprofit organization celebrating people who overcome barriers to employment, and the employers who hire them. His mission is to rekindle hope and energize the work ethic across the nation, through the celebration of a new kind of hero.
