IN MY OWN WORDS - DATA ENTRY CLERK, OSCI

Letter from a Data Entry Clerk

"Benefits derived from working at OCE are extremely helpful for reintegration into society"

"Another aspect of being employed with OCE Print Shop is that it keeps me aware of what it is like to work in an environment that is professional as well as respectful. I have also learned the ability to work productively with other AIC's and Staff, which is a blessing in the prison environment. With the staff here not only treating us respectfully and as an important part of the team we have created here has helped me to gain more respect and confidence in myself. I have been able to create more quality work than I ever thought I was capable of. And learn more about computers than I thought I was even intelligent enough to actually learn."

 

We have received many letters and continue to see more come in. The responses have been fairly well-rounded with a range of positive, negative, and neutral tones. We want to share with you a letter we received from a data entry clerk from the OCE Print Shop at Oregon State Correctional Institution. He chose to leave his name off, and speaks freely about his experiences in OCE. What he has to say in the following letter is real and in his own words.
