Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) Green Re Entry Program Narrative


I. Organization Overview and History

The Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) is a community organization that fosters health, wellness, and healing in the inner-city by organizing for social justice, cultivating the arts, and operating a holistic health center. The organization's headquarters resides in one the most disenfranchised communities in Chicago- Chicago Lawn; a community it serves along with the surrounding neighborhoods of West Englewood and Englewood. Founded in 1997, IMAN offers a myriad of holistic and intersectional services for the diverse, low-income populations it serves, which include: primary, behavioral, and oral health services through its Federally Qualified Health Center; arts and culture programming; youth leadership development; transitional housing, workforce, and construction training for returning citizens and opportunity youth; and food access advocacy coupled with a weekly farmers' market/stand. In 2016, IMAN opened a second location in the West End community of Atlanta, Georgia. The focus ofthis project is Chicago only.

In 2009, IMAN launched its Green ReEntry program to address the challenge of access to affordable housing, while providing transitional housing, life skills, workforce and construction training, behavioral health counseling, case management, high school diploma/GED prep, and job placement to formerly incarcerated/returning citizens and court-involved/opportunity youth.


II. Green ReEntry Program

IMAN's Green ReEntry program is a paid construction training and apprenticeship program in which the participants receive several weeks of paid classroom and construction site training, life skills and behavioral health support, case management, and job placement. IMAN is a certified National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) training site and its instructors deliver the industry recognized curriculum and certifications, in addition to the hands-on training.

IMAN's Green ReEntry program started in 2009 with a focus on adult housing and workforce training for men who were formerly incarcerated returning citizens. Over the years, the organization began to accept youth participants, and in 2017 IMAN formerly instituted a youth program. Specifically, IMAN began to work with youth between the ages of 16 and 25 years of age, providing housing, life skills training, opportunities for service learning, physical and behavioral health services, workforce training, and job placement. Although nearly 200 men have participated in the program over the years, since 2017 IMAN has had approximately 45 youth between the ages of 16 and 24, as well as approximately 20 men over the age of 25 in its Green ReEntry program; and at least 50 have graduated and/or received various certificates from the certified construction training program. Since 2017, participants have rehabbed 3 properties (one

|1010|
single family home and 2 group homes for young men fleeing violence between the ages 16 and 24) and are in the process of rehabbing another single home for a family fleeing violence.

In 2019, IMAN piloted the Weekend Warriors and Green ReEntry-Women. Weekend Warriors is a collaborative city-wide effort between IMAN's Green ReEntry Program and City Colleges of Chicago. It strategically targets young men identified as being at the highest risk of shooting or being shot' on Chicago's hot summer weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day when the violence in Chicago is at its highest. Developed and led by IMAN, Weekend Warriors engages participants for the entire duration ofthe weekend with a robust program that provides high quality education, minimum-wage stipends, artistic expression, job opportunities, case management and wrap-around services embedded in a network of positive social and institutional connections that have long-term impact on their life trajectories. Select city colleges are activated as sites of placement from Friday through Sunday, offering training in their area of specialty. The Weekend Warriors 2019 Pilot was hosted by Richard J. Daley College for 13 participants who received training in Manufacturing Technology with a seminar on College Success. Students graduated to a Basic Certificate in Industrial Welding and 9 college credits. In addition, IMAN piloted Green ReEntry-Women in 2019. An intergenerational cohort of 9 women completed a 16-week NCCER Core Course. In 2020, IMAN will include women in Weekend Warriors.

NCCER Curriculum

IMAN has selected a proven, industry-based curriculum administered by the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER). A leader in workforce development for the construction industry, NCCER sets and maintains the global standard in construction training and certification. NCCER qualifications have been developed by industry subject and academic leaders to help learners gain credentials that are recognized by the industry around the world.

Green ReEntry participants receive daily instruction from Journeyman Status Instructors in the field of Electrical, Carpentry and Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC). NCCER's Core Curriculum is a prerequisite to all other Level 1 craft curriculum. Green ReEntry participants learn the basic skills needed to continue education in its three Green ReEntry Program Trades, Electrical, Carpentry, and HVAC:
Electrical- NCCER Electrical Curriculum is a comprehensive, 4-level Electrical curriculum that complies with DOL time-based standards for apprenticeship. Key to the Green ReEntry participant success is blending classroom and on-site instruction in OSHA, Electrical Safety, Introduction to Electrical Circuits, Electrical Theory, Introduction to the National Electrical Code, Device Boxes, Hand Bending, Raceways and Fittings, Conductors and Cables, Basic Electrical Construction Drawings, Residential Electrical Services, and Electrical Test Equipment curriculum and assessments.
Carpentry - NCCER's Carpentry Curriculum consists of four-level curriculum covers content such as Building Materials, Cabinet Fabrication, and Advanced Wall Systems. The Green ReEntry Instructors provide an NCCER curriculum along with assessments that focus on Building Materials, Fasteners, and Adhesives; Hand and Power Tools; Introduction to Construction Drawings, Specifications, and Layout; Floor Systems; Wall Systems; Ceiling Joist and Roof Framing; and Basic Stair Layout.
HVAC - NCCER's HVAC Curriculum has been designed by highly qualified subject matter experts with this in mind. Our four levels, North American Technician Excellence (NATE)
|1010|
recognized, present theoretical and practical skills essential to your success as an HVAC installer or technician. The Green ReEntry Program Instructors focus on NCCER curriculum standards and assessments for Introduction to HVAC, Trade Mathematics, Basis Electricity, Introduction to Heating, Introduction to Cooling, Introduction to Air Distribution Systems, Basic Copper and Plastic Piping Practices.

NCCER Core Credentials have a solid foundation, providing a clear pathway towards meeting the demands of the construction workforce. IMAN incorporated industry-recognized credentials into its Green ReEntry Programs because it recognized the demand for skilled workers in the industry. The NCCER curriculum provides Green ReEntry participants with a head-start on their careers. Successful completion of NCCER industry-recognized curriculum provides graduates with a better opportunity of being hired within the Chicagoland construction industry. The NCCER's industry-recognized credentials provide participants and craft professionals with national portability of skills. NCCER maintains credentialing and certification through its Registry System. A full set of printed credentials are sent to a participant once successful completion is achieved.

Finally, participants in IMAN's Green ReEntry ("GR") have become general contractors who have worked on City of Chicago projects, been accepted in the union apprentice programs, and a few have been hired as NCCER-certified instructors in the program. There is a demand for housing in the city, and in the communities that IMAN serves there is no shortage of abandoned homes and opportunities for training and employment in the communities to rebuild. IMAN's Green ReEntry impactful model of community restoration has been featured in various media, such as the Chicago Reporter, "Ex-Inmates Help Revitalize Community, 'Get Humanity Back.'"1
