Will Avila

Will Avila is an ex-offender who was sentenced to an adult prison at the age of 16 and spent 10 years in and out of prison, struggling to transition back into the community. Will, like so many other returning citizens, experienced first-hand the challenges, and rejection, that come with transitioning back into society and the workforce. In 2014, he founded Clean Decisions, a commercial kitchen and cleaning and labor services company with a bigger dream: to help employ returning citizens—people like him—who long for an opportunity to prove to society they are worth investing in.
