Bars Can’t Block Success

Overview: 2.2 million people are in our nation’s jails and prisons. Millions of families are affected by America’s broken criminal justice system, especially communities of color. Nearly 700,000 prisoners are released each year in need of housing, work, and a second chance. The goal of this class is to educate on how small choices can create life changing consequences. Additionally, we will try to reduce the stigma associated with ex-offenders by highlighting their plight of navigating reentry and becoming purpose-driven entrepreneurs and activists passionate about helping others and changing the world.

Ages: 13 – adult
