The mission of the Petey Greene Program is to supplement education in correctional institutions by preparing volunteers, primarily college students, to provide free, quality tutoring and related programming to support the academic achievement of incarcerated people. We are ten years old and are a small, growing national organization with over twenty employees in eight states. We envision a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high-quality academic programs.
To accomplish these goals, the Petey Greene Program builds partnerships with universities and correctional institutions. The program collaborates with universities and student groups to recruit, train, and coordinate volunteers, typically undergraduate and graduate students. We then work with correctional facilities to enable these volunteers to work as tutors and teaching assistants in adult basic education, high school, high school equivalency, and college classes. This supplemental educational service is provided at no charge to the students or to the correctional facilities.
