Who We are
Here at KLAP, Inc. we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making our community a better place for all citizens. A stigma is placed on those individuals that have been incarcerated as "once a criminal always a criminal". This stigma decreases their chances of obtaining gainful employment thus increasing their chances of returning to crime.
KLAP, Inc. wants to help our community by providing not a hand out but a solution!
By offering a low voltage apprenticeship training program, we are helping with industry demand for skilled laborers in a lucrative field, contributing to the economy by creating viable employees and reducing the crime rate of repeat offenders.
At KLAP, Inc. we are a 501c3 raising funds and promoting initiatives to help enhance our community by developing a job skill program for light ex-offenders in the area of low voltage work to reintroduce them back into society.
Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.
''According to online research and studies "Employment and recidivism; Most research regarding recidivism indicates that those ex-inmates that obtain employment after release from prison tend to have lower rates of recidivism. In one study, it was found that even if marginal employment, especially for ex-inmates over the age of 26, is offered to ex-inmates, those ex-inmates are less likely to commit crime than their counterparts. Another study found that ex-inmates were less likely to re-offend if they found and maintained stable employment throughout their first year of parole. Although research is clear that obtaining employment can reduce recidivism, one must closely examine the ability of ex-inmates to obtain employment once released from prison"

“I had accumulated a few charges on my record which prevented me from being able to obtain a good and steady job with full time hours and benefits, until I was blessed to hear about KLAP Inc apprenticeship program and working with TLVC,LLC.
