A Path for Everyone
Dennis Pierce, Community College Daily
Chris Hansen is one of nine re-entry navigators for the state of Washington, tasked with helping inmates get the job training and employment they need to be productive citizens upon their release. The navigator positions were established by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges with a grant from the Department of Corrections.
In creating these positions, the state board recognized the critical role that community colleges play in preparing nontraditional students for successful careers.
