Prison Education Foundation is a public charity non-profit dedicated to providing incarcerated men and women with the opportunity to change their lives through higher education. Releasing someone back into society with a GED has in reality, done very little for preparing him or her to function successfully. So, Prison Education Foundation offers associates or bachelor’s degrees or higher level of educational achievement to our nation’s federal and state prisons at no cost to them. In conjunction with several properly accredited, highly regarded and affordable colleges, Prison Education Foundation has developed a turn-key system that is simple and effective. Various associate and baccalaureate degrees are now available to men and women housed in our prisons. The degrees offered through these schools have been assembled by the Prison Education Foundation into a formal program. The Prison Education Foundation, through its ConnectPoint Network, seeks to connect the incarcerated person and his wounded family to a local community mentor and support team as quickly as possible. The team offers encouragement and assistance to the incarcerated person and his or her family during the incarceration years and visit them in prison.
