Peer Employment Training: Graduation Day

Terrence Smithers

Abstract

"As a boy, I always wanted to help people. When my journey took me other places and eventually repeated incarceration, I knew my dream was gone forever. Bringing me this program has given me the hope and possibility that I can be that man I always wanted to be. Thank you for returning me to me." —Anonymous This was one of the many moving and uplifting statements from Peer Employment Training (PET) graduates at a state correctional institution. In my eyes, the graduation was as beautiful and meaningful as it could be. The men, though brief in their speeches, shared wonderful messages of "Hope, Choice, and Empowerment," the Pathways to Recovery they had learned over the past 2 weeks.
