PEP provides a holistic solution for our graduates, from in-prison leadership and business education to robust and results-oriented support once they are released. But we are not alone in our endeavor to transform our clients and the larger community.

PEP relies on other programs and institutions to provide volunteer assistance and expertise as well as financial support so that our program is at the forefront of prison rehabilitation. Working together with our valued partners, PEP can reach more men and deliver the best available program of its kind.

The result? PEP and partners deliver a world-class program with outstanding results. Additionally, with the great partners that we collaborate with, we can more effectively spread the word about PEP and enhance our influence.
