August 25 – Prison Education Project: Saving Lives

Ernst Fenelon, Senior Program Coordinator, Prison Education Project (PEP)
Rachel Daniels, Worship Leader

Join us to hear about the largest volunteer-based prison education program of its kind in the United States. This is a unique program that builds communities through educating prisoners prior to their release. The Prison Education Project expands educational opportunities for inmates in 14 California correctional facilities. With the assistance of 2,400 university student and faculty volunteers, PEP has serviced approximately 7,000 inmates in these facilities since 2011. We will hear about this successful program from Ernst Fenelon, Senior Program Coordinator. Learn how education programs in prison create good neighbors and citizens.
