Nebraska State Probation
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Nebraska State Probation is focused on Evidence-Based Practices which has shown that employment directly reduces recidivism. The Rural Improvement for Schooling and Employment (RISE) program was developed for probationers in rural areas of Nebraska. The RISE program is supported by RISE Specialists who facilitate groups for adults and juveniles by teaching employment and educational skills. The goal is to improve probationer's interactions in society and not return to the probation system.
