How We Work


We prepare justice involved individuals for successful reentry and living wage employment

Prepare every justice-involved individual for a successful and sustained re-entry to society


We believe in ethical economics

We believe that education should be rigorous, practical, and accessible for all those involved in the criminal justice system. That’s why we never charge justice involved individuals, or their friends and family
