A Unique Approach To Re-Entry

We recently created a unique set of programs for a Re-Entry facility in a major prison system. The idea was to offer programming in a form that mirrors a college experience, with required courses and elective courses that inmates could choose in collaboration with their counselors.

We created a total of 823 total hours of programming, divided into Core courses, Core Elective courses, and Extended Elective courses. Each Core and Core Elective course is comprised of 10, 1-hour group sessions.

We worked closely with our colleagues to develop this creative approach, and are very pleased with the results! The PDF file at the link below is the final course list. We would be happy to talk in more detail about this with you– just contact us!

The overriding theme throughout the curriculum is “What went wrong?” Participants will examine the events that led to their referral, their poor decision-making, their ability to handle temptations and risk factors, their difficulties in complying with parole requirements and supervision, and more!
