in Connecticut. Since 2018, YPEI has brought access to rigorous, credit-bearing

liberal arts courses and programming to incarcerated students in the state;

YPEI also provides direct support to formerly incarcerated students returning

home, offering our students resume-building assistance, job search help, and

established a collaboration with the University of New Haven to offer degrees to

incarcerated students enrolled in the program, and to create pathways for

released students to continuing educational and professional development

opportunities. In 2022, YPEI-UNH launched new programming at the Danbury

Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT, where it is now offering the
