“That wall isn’t there just to keep me in, but to keep you out.”
- Tyrone W. (former inside participant)
Education through which we are able to encounter each other, especially across profound social barriers, is transformative and allows problems to be approached in new and different ways.
The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program increases opportunities for men and women, inside and outside of prison, to have transformative learning experiences that emphasize collaboration and dialogue, inviting participants to take leadership in addressing crime, justice, and other issues of social concern.

“It’s so important that people can talk to and understand each other. What Inside-Out is doing is letting people see each other, and really talk. That’s the value of education. Bringing young people into prisons for classes means that they really meet each other. They hear each other’s stories and see each other as real people. That’s so important in creating justice in this world."
