Fair Opportunities Employment



Each year thousands of Minnesotans exit incarceration and come back into our community. Too often it feels that even though they have served their sentence, they are continually defined by that worst day,decision or moment. 

Ramsey County and the Workforce Innovation Board of Ramsey County are offering information, resources and events to help employers better understand the value of hiring individuals impacted by the criminal justice system.

Upcoming Events: 

  • Stop by the Ramsey County Fair Opportunities Coalition booth at the Selby Avenue JazzFest on Saturday, September 9, 11 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. Get information about community resources for employers and residents about fair opportunities employment resources. Let's get everyone to work! 
  • Power Within Us helps support young adults ages 16-24 who are currently on probation in Ramsey County connect to paid job training and education programs. Resource sessions are held every second Tuesday from 4-5:30 p.m. at Arlington Hills Community Center.  Learn more.
