PAR-Recycle Works

The Penn Spring 2017 Class’s evaluation found their $10,000 grant to PAR-Recycle Works to be a good decision with a good outcome at a vote of 78% because the organization as experienced tremendous growth and was able to deliver adequate data. However, 22% of the class found the grant to be a good decision with a bad outcome since it did not address the challenges with people unaligned with the goal of the organization. PAR-Recycle Works’ mission is to recycle electronics and provide transitional employment to people returning from correctional institutions. Because of the grant, the organization has implemented a new digital literacy course.
