I have the opportunity to develop a digital lit curriculum for people being released from incarceration, some of whom have done over 20 years in prison.

This has the potential to have huge positive impacts on their lives; they need to know how to attach a resumé to an email, and how to avoid scammers, among many many other basic skills we all take for granted.

Please if you have any input I would appreciate it because I am not omnipotent and can't think of everything.

Please boost this!
