Educational Programs

Providing educational services to those who are incarcerated is crucial in maintaining public safety. 

The most effective way to keep people out of prison once they leave is through education and job skills. 


Education is the ultimate equalizer

On average inmates serve a nine-month sentence before getting released and returning back into our communities. For those inmates who demonstrate a desire to turn their lives around, our goal is to provide the most effective and impactful opportunities so they are less likely to re-offend and commit future crimes. Keeping inmates out of prison through academics & vocational training directly reduces recidivism, making all of our communities safer.
