S3E5 (episode 25): Amy Barch on Better Re-Entry and Reducing Recidivism

In this empathetic podcast episode of People are the Answer, Amy Barch and Jeffrey M. Zucker discuss her path to starting Turn90, a non profit organization aiming to help men succeed after prison, second chance hiring, reducing recidivism (the tendency for convicted criminals to reoffend), and much more…

In 2012, Amy Barch founded Turn90, a nonprofit, with the mission to help men succeed after prison. Prison reentry became her life’s passion after an internship in a local jail helping incarcerated individuals earn their GED. Turn90 (formerly Turning Leaf) has received national attention for its innovative, therapeutic approach to reentry, and is currently expanding its footprint by opening a second location in Columbia, SC and a third in upstate South Carolina. Amy earned a Bachelor’s in Law, Societies and Justice from the University of Washington and is currently earning a Master’s in Criminal Justice at Arizona State University. She has called Charleston her home since 2010.
