At the age of 15, Jason Wang was given a 12-year sentence at a maximum-security prison in Texas. Upon release, he earned two master’s degrees and was still unable to find a job due to his criminal history. Jason decided to become an agent for change. He started FreeWorld. FreeWorld empowers people who have been in prison with educational support and technical skills to enter into high-wage, high-demand careers so they can live fulfilling lives, prison-free. FreeWorld aims to break the cycle of recidivism and generational poverty by demonstrating the potential of reentering citizens creating meaningful career pathways and providing critical support services for the individuals and their families to overcome significant barriers. Impact areas: justice reform, economic empowerment, workforce development, education, racial justice, economic development, and poverty alleviation.
