Perhaps the most important job being performed by NOBTS graduates today is the role of reentry mentor.
The large majority of the lifers who serve as mentors to the young men sentenced to the reentry program are graduates of NOBTS.
In addition to the NOBTS graduates who are guiding these young men to a more disciplined mindset and moral life, other inmates are teaching job skills to the reentry program participants.
Due to heavy budget cuts and staff shortages in recent years, most of the instructors for educational, vocational and life-skills programming are also inmates who have earned their degrees from NOBTS.
