“I believe that everyone in life deserves a second chance. My goal is to remove barriers of a person’s past and provide an opportunity through a second chance. So please be sure to join us at the Second Chance Job Fair.”

- Council Member Dwight Boykins

The Second Chance Job Fair will provide opportunities for individuals who are unemployed, underemployed, have dropped out of high school and those who have made mistakes in the past, including nonviolent ex-felons, and are in need of a second chance.


The mission of the Workforce, Job Training, and 2nd Chance Initiative is to assist with addressing the City of Houston workforce shortage and to empower members of our community by improving their quality of life and financial stability.
