Our Philosophy

Adults in the United States are facing the challenges of life in a rapidly changing technological age. Successfully addressing these challenges requires adults to employ educational processes that are the basic tools of human growth and development. Adult prisoners as a group lack basic educational tools needed to successfully adapt to the economic, sociological and cultural dimensions of society. Confined people need to develop the academic skills to process knowledge and information. They need skills that allow them to contribute to a productive society. They need social skills that give them self-confidence and the ability to interact successfully with peers.
