At PEP, innovation is critical to empowering our clients. It is key to the program’s results. The very structure of our program, the education, the mentoring and the continued post-release support are innovative.
Our culture promotes innovation. PEP does things that no other organization can match and our results are second to none. From our detailed candidate selection process to our in-prison leadership academy and mini-MBA boot camp to the real and very competitive business plan competition to the post-release support structure, every part of our program is carefully designed to provide our men the skills to be successful upon release from prison.
The drive to empower innovation carries over to our clients. Most clients are accomplishing objectives that they never thought possible. They see a future with transformation, hope restored and families rebuilt. We encourage our men to think differently and embrace their inherent creativity and ability to innovate.
Many organizations recognize PEP for the quality of our results and the ROI the program consistently delivers. We are pleased that PEP ranked as a finalist for the prestigious Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation.
But we never rest on our laurels. We continuously examine and measure what is making the most impact and refine the program to strengthen it.
