Our Mission

Proficiency in reading and writing enriches the lives of inmates and their families. It also gives them a greater chance of success on their journey towards rehabilitation. Our program has worked successfully with San Quentin inmates for over twenty years. We operate Monday through Friday from 6 PM to 8 PM. Our students are hardworking, dedicated and appreciative. We inspire them! They inspire us!

Make a Difference

We are 100% funded by private donations. As an all-volunteer organization, 90%+ of our funds go directly into our programs – making a difference, one student at a time!
