Our mission is to provide college transfer classes for inmates at Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution


VALUE OF THE PROGRAM

  • Education has proven to reduce recidivism
  • In reducing recidivism, the state is saved thousands of dollars when an inmate doesn't come back into the system
  • Education helps the inmate develop a sense of self-worth
  • Discovering success in a college level course is a great motivator to continue education outside of the prison setting and can give the inmate a new direction in life.
