For program graduates, the celebration follows months of regular reporting to the Stockton Day Reporting Center, where they received evidence-based programming, including cognitive behavioral treatment and training.

The Stockton Day Reporting Center is located at 1003 West Mathews Road in French Camp and was opened by DAPO in May 2008 to ease prison overcrowding and reduce recidivism rates among adult parolees. To successfully complete the program, participants must complete cognitive behavioral treatment developed to change criminal behavior, maintain sobriety for 90 days and participate in their prescribed group meetings. Graduates are either employed or enrolled in community college.
