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!
Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds – business people, students, nurses, artists and teachers to name a few! This variety brings a richness to our program and helps to unleash their hidden and unlimited abilities.
