Only 1 in 3 inmates gain permanent employment after release.

Change The Narrative.

Our vision

An individual's criminal justice involvement should not determine their life's narrative.

Hack the Narrative aims to establish a foundation for men and women who have been incarcerated to utilize technical skills to seek gainful employment. In order to prepare those involved in the criminal justice system for employment, we teach high-demand technical skills on the Salesforce platform.

At the end of the course, we hope to prepare students to successfully pass the Salesforce Certified Administrator Exam, and to be employed as Salesforce Administrators. Learn more about our programming and curriculum below.

Our Mission

to teach technical skills to incarcerated individuals to prepare them for successful community re-entry.

Because employment is a vital determinant in quality of life, HTN empowers individuals to learn high-demand skills in order to successfully enter the workforce after release.

During and after the course, Hack The Narrative fosters individuals to become community leaders, advocates for justice, and engaged citizens. We aim to change the lives of every individual re-entering society to destigmatize their past and give them a future filled with hope.
