Why Tutor in the Jails?
Because the uneducated go to jail more than anyone else.
Conservative national statistics suggest that 2/3 of inmates in this country don’t read and write well enough to manage in their daily lives.
These people are released into our communities without the skills to carry out everyday tasks that most of us take for granted, like reading a bus schedule or prescription label, filling out a job application, using a phone book, or writing a note to the teacher of a school-aged child.
The simple fact: inmates who can read and write have a greater chance of staying out of trouble when they get out of jail.
We provide inmates with tangible skills to prepare them for life after jail.
