Published on: 22nd July, 2021

Welcome to the Prison Post! Episode 34 is here today with CROP Organization's humble and talented Ready for Life Associate, Elgin Rose. He is the fifth CROP Associate to join us to share his transformational story and reentry journey. Elgin is one of the most inspiring and authentic people we have had as part of our Signature Ready for Life Program. Watch and listen to his story!

Elgin Rose is a 29-year-old father of two beautiful girls. He’s from San Francisco and loves tasty food and gaming. His dream is to have a great career in tech, which will allow him to provide for his daughters and have the ability to travel the world someday. Elgin is hard working, super funny, a natural storyteller, and a committed father. We love his worth ethic, drive, and his numerous impersonations.

Creating Restorative Opportunities and Programs' (CROP) Ready for Life Program provides: Three months of Leadership Development provided by CROP, Financial Literacy provided by Beneficial State Bank, and IC3 Digital Literacy training provided by LinkedIn Learning. CROP also provides three months of career training in Business to Business Sales in Tech. We have partnered with Code Tenderloin and Checkr, Inc. to provide this training and employment opportunities upon graduation. CROP Organization provides a $1,000 monthly stipend to our Associates as they go through our six month program. We want to thank Oracle and Dell for their strong support now and in the future.
