About Us

VISION

We envision a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high-quality academic programs and we strive to inspire our alumni - both students and tutors - to become advocates, and to take on leadership roles that reimagine the criminal legal system.

MISSION

The Petey Greene Program supports the academic goals of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people through high-quality volunteer tutoring programs, while educating volunteers on the injustice manifest in our carceral system.

Founded in 2008 at Princeton University, PGP is named after Petey Greene, Jr., a formerly incarcerated 1960s community activist, who dedicated his life to advocacy on behalf of people in prison. Now with programs in seven states, PGP recruits 1,000 volunteers annually through partnerships with 30 universities, tutoring over 2,000 incarcerated people in nearly 50 correctional facilities.
