It’s an unfortunate fact that 2.2 million people are imprisoned in the United States. In the Criminal Justice field, professionals work to meet the needs of imprisoned populations while also trying to prevent re-entry into the system.
The Petey Greene Program’s mission is to supplement the educational resources of local prisons by providing correctional facilities with additional tutors at no cost. They partner with colleges and universities to train students as volunteers to tutor prison inmates in their local penitentiaries.
Interested in learning how you can be a volunteer? The Petey Greene Program will be hosting an information session at Peirce College on Thursday, November 13 at 6:30 in room 42, or you can visit their website at www.peteygreene.org.
