Rev. Brown speaks with Sethu Odayappan, CEO and co-Founder of Second Chance USA. They are a young organization dedicated to reducing recidivism by providing training and matching ex-offenders with employment opportunities.

Formed by 3 high school students, they offer a great example of social enterprise and the power that young people have to change the world.

By doing this, they're able to:

  • Reduce the rate of recidivism (% of ex-offenders who commit another crime)
  • Fill a middle-skill labor gap that currently exists in many markets
  • Provide a better future for ex-offenders
