How The Last Mile helped Kenyatta Leal walk from prison in San Quentin to a job in tech

One year after their release, more than 75 percent of California’s formerly incarcerated can’t find jobs. One former prisoner, Kenyatta Leal, was serving a life sentence in San Quentin prison and was determined to change that number.

 On this episode he talks about what led him to prison, the mentors he found inside and how The Last Mile teaches people to code with no internet.

Leal also discusses his release, and how the tech skills he learned in prison landed him a job. For Leal, those skills included being able to blog and express himself on Twitter and Quora with no internet. Finally, Leal emphasizes the importance of breaking the cycle of incarceration.

Since Leal’s release, he has been able to help several people get jobs in tech, including some of the prisoners with him during his time in San Quentin.
