The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program at Arizona State University brings together university students and incarcerated individuals to learn about issues of crime and justice over a full semester. The culmination of this community-based learning is an actionable project designed to improve our correctional system.
The first ASU Inside-Out class believed that a better knowledge of available resources could help individuals stay out of prison. The class put together a website for incarcerated individuals who are soon to be released, complete with resources such as hotlines, employment opportunities, and tools for veterans.
The Spring 2016 class was able to resurrect a popular program not offered in the prison in years: the Impact of Crime on Victims Class. This class is centered around restorative justice and those who choose to participate in the class listen to victims share their stories.
“I sincerely hope more schools will consider offering Inside-Out to change lives and renew hope in so many men who desire to live better lives." — Johnny, Inside Student
