The Petey Greene Program supplements education in correctional institutions by providing individualized tutoring. We work to support academic achievement in prison classrooms to support the future success of people in prison and to build stronger communities. We envision a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high quality academic programs and all people recognize their stake in supporting education in correctional facilities.
Since 2007, we have built connections between universities and local departments of corrections, helping to facilitate meaningful educational programming for incarcerated people. We worked exclusively in New Jersey up until 2014 and now have thriving programs in 7 states on the East Coast from Maryland to Massachusetts. We provide supplemental educational resources to corrections departments at no charge to their facilities. Our enthusiastic, knowledgeable volunteers are trained to work one-on-one with students who need extra assistance, allowing teachers to focus on moving the class forward.
