Community Corrections Chase

Community Corrections Chase logo

APPA’s inaugural interactive learning experience, the Community Corrections Chase (C3), will offer a fun, rewarding, and competitive challenge for training institute attendees! It is a take on the very popular CBS show, The Amazing Race, where contestants “race” to win a cash prize. In our competition, community corrections/supervision professionals will team up to “chase” an opportunity to gain knowledge about practices, theories, and policy information that increase understanding of this industry. Teams will leave the New York Marriott Marquis hotel on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. They will either walk or take some form of transportation (subway, taxi, bus) to different New York-based organizations (public, private, and not-for-profit) that have a footprint in the reentry community. Each site will offer a different educational and fact finding expedition. Teams will be provided a transit card and will travel no more than fifteen miles round trip during this race. All members of the first team to return to the hotel after successfully completing all assignments at its targeted organization will be crowned champions! Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams, and all will get a certificate of completion. The session has limited availability, so don’t miss out on this opportunity!
