Our Program & Services
While all are encouraged to apply to the program, prospective interns are chosen following a rigorous selection process. Through court records, interviews and personal contact we identify candidates that have proven themselves ready and motivated to learn skills that will set them on a new path toward long-term gainful employment.
While securing the support of local businesses, Uluru educates employers about the considerable economic benefits of hiring a well-trained and motivated prospect who has served their time and has overcome their history of incarceration. We share data that clearly shows that those who leave incarceration and obtain gainful employment become excellent employees.
Uluru services do not end upon the intern securing employment. Uluru develops opportunities for the graduates to share their experience with school children as well as new prospective interns. Graduates need additional support as their income, work and personal responsibilities grow. We will be there to mentor them during these periods so they continue to grow and prosper.
Acceptance into the inaugural Uluru Program begins with the submission of an application. Applications will be available by contacting Uluru on or after December 15, 2016 and must be received by Uluru on or before January 10, 2017. Contact us for additional information.
Uluru/Ayers Rock, Australia
A spiritual and ceremonial landmark
Finding power in new ways of expression
“Uluru” is the Australian Aboriginal name for Ayers Rock, one of Australia's most recognizable landmarks. Uluru/Ayers Rock is a magnificent sandstone rock formation in the middle of the Australian outback, soaring skyward 1,141 feet above the desert floor and 2.2 miles long and 1.2 miles wide, with a circumstance of 5.6 miles. Uluru is revered by its native peoples as one of the most sacred sites in all of Australia.
Symbolically, we think the name Uluru serves well, not only as confirmation of the innate wisdom of native cultures, but also of the present day importance and service obligation to optimize the “rite of passage” journey of our young people, a tradition viewed so fundamental to the very survival of virtually all native cultures.”
