Free to Succeed is a tutoring and educational help program, where outside volunteers help inmates in San Quentin get the help they need in reading, writing and other subjects. Open five nights a week, our study hall provides a safe place for men to learn, grow, and gain the confidence they need on their journey towards rehabilitation. Our atmosphere is informal and the social contact with the men is part of the help we offer.
Our volunteers come from variety of backgrounds – business people, college students, nurses, artists, retirees, and teachers to name a few! These many perspectives bring a richness to our program, as these many volunteer talents help unleash the potential in our students.
