Mission of Merit Partners
Merit Partners, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has operated Merit Partners within the Northern California Youth Facility in Stockton, California since 2004.
Merit operates its electronic reclamation business by employing and training young adult offenders in all aspects of running a business. From receiving older electronics from our corporate clients, to systemically filing and cataloging each item, to restoring the electronics, to eventually selling and shipping the electronics to customers, each step is performed by our highly trained employees. Our jobs and job-training program helps prepare young adults with the inspiration and skills to succeed upon release from incarceration. Merit hires individuals who show desire to learn and willingness to contribute and be held accountable for their work.
