Fresh Start: A Conversation with Pat McGee

| Texas

A life of crime can trap people in a cycle of recidivism. But if given the opportunity to find independence and dignity through work, the outcome can look very different. Meet Pat McGee, who by age 17, was living a life of crime and had shot a man and was sentenced to years in prison. But two years before leaving prison, Pat McGee was introduced to the Prison Entrepreneurship Program, which gave him a pathway from crime to work and education as he re-entered society. Watch his inspiring story of how the power of work can shut down the pipeline to prison.
