The Kentucky Chamber Foundation’s Workforce Recovery Program will launch its first Fair Chance Academy on May 11, 2022.  The Fair Chance Academy aims to provide businesses with training and experiences to adopt a Fair Chance workplace that provides transformational employment successfully. A total of 15 companies will be selected for the Spring of 2022. The selected businesses will commit to attending three (3) sessions of training workshops, followed by three (3) months of implementing actionable steps within their companies to prepare them for being transformational employers.
 
This initiative bridges the gap between businesses' need for employees and those in active recovery or returning citizens to find meaningful employment.  After attending The Fair Chance Academy, Kentucky businesses are equipped with the tools and resources to help them successfully hire, train, and retain exceptional talent and be on the road to becoming transformational employers.  We invite you to apply for this first cohort of the Fair Chance Academy!
  
Following the completion of this application form, all applicants must submit a Letter of Support from their CEO in order to be considered for the Fair Chance Academy. The form can be found at the link below. All completed letters can be emailed to Autumn Windom at Awindom@kychamber.com.
