Last week we were forced to cancel our Back to Business workshop at the Kansas City Reentry Center, a minimum security prison in the West Bottoms neighborhood, due to the coronavirus crisis. At about the same time, visitations were cancelled at the prison, further isolating our student entrepreneurs and everyone in prison.
As we all learn to cope with our current reality, we thought it may be mutually beneficial to open a life line between our men on the inside and those of us in Kansas City who are looking for opportunities to support and encourage others during this difficult time.
Introducing Generate: a newsletter from Determination, Incorporated that connects our caring community with people in prison.
Here’s how it works: every couple of weeks, we will share some writing prompts with you on a specific theme in a Google Form. If you feel led to share, simply answer one or more of the prompts and we will choose a few to feature in that week’s newsletter, which our partners at the Kansas City Reentry Center (& other prisons around the state) will print out for the men & women.

This is a test for us, but our hope is that by making positive connections in our community, we will all grow stronger and better able to make it through life’s ups and downs. Thank you for your consideration have a wonderful day.
