BeeHavin’ Provides – 2nd Chance Employment

Project Creator

View this Project

Taking the sting out of unemployment following incarceration, BeeHavin’ is a socially conscious enterprise conceived by Vanessa Bright, a Family and Consumer Sciences Educator for University of Maryland Extension. Why choose ex-offenders for this initiative? A lack of sustainable employment opportunities represents one of the greatest barriers to an individual’s successful reintergration into society from incarceration resulting in high recidivism rates. Many get out of prison with just their meager belongings and a criminal record. BeeHavin’ is a chance to start over again and access economic independence.

A prison educator, Vanessa realized the immense potential of BeeHavin’ to contribute to social welfare and the environment. This is how this social enterprise initiative which also helps our environment was born. After all, experts estimate we have only 4 years to live, if bees are wiped off the face of this earth. Twin benefits of this enterprise are social welfare and ecological conservation. The business is geared towards products that are made using beeswax and natural oils.
BeeHavin’ will provide retail services through its website and also supply its products to wholesalers. Be part of positive change and help an ex-offender turn a new leaf. Give ex-offenders a fighting chance at life again and contribute to society for a welcome change.
