WASHINGTON (ABC7) — A program that helps D.C. inmates transition to life outside is celebrating its first round of graduates.

15 fellows with Georgetown University’s Pivot Program graduated over the summer and will finish their last day of class at the end of August.

The Pivot Program is a one-year transition and re-entry program centered around academic work and pushing former inmates to become entrepreneurs.

“Business schools are about creating opportunity. There is a population in our community that is ready to contribute,” said Pietra Rivoli, director of Pivot Program. “We support if they want to transition to full-time employment. We also support if they want to create their own business.”

Sheri Davis, a fellow in the program, calls it a second chance. “One mistake shouldn’t define my whole life.”

Davis is a former District of Columbia Public School (DCPS) elementary teacher, who has two masters in business and primary education.

Life was going pretty good before she committed a crime that resulted in 22 months behind bars.
