dc.description.abstract <p>This study aims to discover how unemployment programs that aim to alleviate criminal activity and recidivism happening in the United States of America affects different types of offenders. It analyzes an unemployment program called The New York Center of Employment Opportunities, which offers comprehensive employment services exclusively for people with criminal records. The study observes the recidivism results of offenders who took part in the program and compares the differential characteristics of how offenders responded to CEO. By learning about the strengths and weaknesses of the CEO program and how it has affected different areas of offenders, we can better develop and improve programs to alleviate the issues of unemployment and diminish criminal activity and recidivism. We learned from the study that not all types of offenders are affected by the same types of treatment or correctional programs because they possess many different characteristics, traits, and backgrounds.</p>
