Revolutionizing Inmate Education with Peer-Led Excellence

Welcome to Prison101 ed's revolutionary approach to inmate education – where the power of peer-led learning takes center stage. Our Prison 101 educational courses are more than just curriculum; they are transformative journeys designed to empower incarcerated individuals to become facilitators of their own growth. At the heart of this approach is a belief that shared experiences and mentorship hold the keys to successful reintegration. We understand that true empowerment goes beyond traditional education, requiring relatability, empathy, and a sense of purpose. This innovative methodology draws its strength from the profound personal journey of our visionary Founder, Ms. Dalis Freixa. A decade ago, during her own incarceration, she began crafting these very courses that are still being used today to catalyze transformative change. Her passion, experience, and tireless advocacy have shaped a new paradigm in inmate education, one that bridges the gap between aspiration and achievement. Through our unique peer-led model, we cultivate an environment of trust, support, and shared aspirations. Join us as we explore how this visionary methodology not only transforms lives but also strengthens communities and ignites lasting change.
