Kevin McCracken

Executive Director
Kevin has been working in fair chance employment for 22 years. In 2015 while volunteering for the California Reentry Program in San Quentin he met Diana Williams, Co-Founder of Prison to Employment Connection. They have maintained a strong working relationship since, with Kevin sitting on the Advisory Board, as well as volunteering for Employer Day. Kevin's passion for helping his fellow human beings is infectious. After years of helping to run one of the most successful Social Enterprises in the country, Social Imprints, Kevin was ready for a change. In 2022 he went from volunteer to Executive Director, bringing his network, belief in change, and desire to rebuild the system to P2EC. While you might find Kevin hosting large events to spread the word about the vital work of our program, he is most at home and inspired when delivering our unique curriculum to the participants in San Quentin.
