Teacher Resources

Every day in America, almost 50,000 young people wake up in a jail cell.  For too long, the education and juvenile justice systems have failed these students.  We develop quality educational programs that inspire and engage students held in confinement. 

We develop high-quality curriculum in the form of mini-units (initiatives), book clubs, and more. We share these resources at no cost with teachers working inside of juvenile justice facilities across the country.

 

Our resources offer teachers access to timely and relevant instructional materials they can use as core content or to supplement their school curricula. Our educational initiatives also include national contests.

Educational Initiatives

Our curriculum mini-units offer opportunities for students to engage in meaningful and relevant project-based learning.  These units are intended to be used as core content or supplemental projects and most include a national contest.
