Sean Hosman

Founder, Persevere

Wednesday, June 8
Morning Plenary | 8:30–10:00 AM



Sean Hosman is the Founder of Persevere, building the organization from his own experience as an ex-offender and his desire to help others. For the past twenty years, Sean has pioneered reform in criminal justice systems throughout the United States as the CEO of Vant4ge. He has been a leader in creating, developing, and implementing advanced, system-wide frameworks for evidence-based practices, including tools, instruments, technology, policy and practice, and ultimately, outcomes. Sean started with juvenile justice systems, in 1998, working with the Washington State Institute for Public Policy and the Washington Association of Counties to develop and implement the country's first fourth generation juvenile risk and needs assessment and case planning system. From this initial work, he has continued to develop and implement increasingly advanced implementation platforms, in both juvenile delinquency and adult corrections systems, specializing in state and local departments of juvenile justice and corrections. Sean's work has evolved to encompass the entire continuum of correctional care, or Rehabilitative Life Cycle, specializing in the continuity of data-driven decision making throughout entire systems, from arrest, jail, probation, community corrections, prison or residential supervision, to parole and aftercare. Mr. Hosman holds a Juris Doctorate from Brigham Young University's J. Reuben Clark School of Law and is a member of the Utah and Colorado State Bars, and the American Bar Association.
