I’ve written quite a bit about the importance of training and educational programs for inmates in helping prepare them for release. This program is a good example of helping inmates learn a skill that is transferable to the real world. As you prepare to enter prison, and once there, I highly recommend making a list of specific skills, training and education you want to gain while doing time. being intentional about it is critical in building a sense of dedication, direction and accomplishment.
When I entered prison I knew I wanted to work on body, mind and spirit. This meant spending time studying both spiritually and mentally and taking time to eat healthy and work out. I took classes around entrepreneurship and also taught classes about marketing and public speaking.
Do you know you are going to prison? If so, you can really choose to take two paths. You can crawl up and wait to be taken into custody, or you can get busy preparing yourself for the day you enter prison. The more prepared you are now, the better you will do once you get there. We are here to help you.
