Batesville starts second chance program

AFS Corporate Member Batesville Products (Lawrenceburg, Indiana) has introduced a second chance program. Working with Beacon of Hope, Dearborn County Court Services (DCCS), Workforce Connection and Purdue University’s Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP), Batesville is developing a program that “will help individuals get a fresh start in the workforce,” the company said in a news release.

“This second chance program will help both the company and the surrounding community build a relationship,” BPI said.

In the news release, BPI said it’s hoping to connect DCCS and the MEP, along with Beacon of Hope and Workforce Connection, to bring the MEP program to Dearborn County.

“BPI trusts in the concept of giving people a second chance and hopes this program will continue to grow and inspire other companies to do the same,” the company said.
