Drawing on the experience of the 11 sites involved in P/PV's Ready4Work prisoner reentry demonstration, as well as established best practices in the mentoring field, this manual provide guidelines for practitioners interested in developing a mentoring program to support former prisoners and enhance the effectiveness of other reentry services.

Written by P/PV, it was originally published by the US Department of Labor in November 2007 under the title "Mentoring Ex-Prisoners: A Guide for Prisoner Reentry Programs." In light of growing interest in establishing mentoring programs as part of larger reentry efforts around the country, P/PV reissued the guide, along with updated information related to the evaluation of Ready4Work, particularly findings published in "Mentoring Formerly Incarcerated Adults."
