Respect Reduces Recidivism
College Guild provides free correspondence courses that connect incarcerated people with a community beyond prison walls, fostering mutual respect through a shared passion for learning.
"I feel human again and not like some animal."
Through respecting each of our students as thoughtful human beings, College Guild plays a critical role in reducing recidivism. We not only provide free education, we help our students discover the best in themselves.
College Guild is not affiliated with any religious or political group. Our courses are designed to be both thought-provoking and fun while encouraging objectivity and creativity. They relieve the boredom of prison life with an opportunity to spend time constructively. For many inmates, our courses are the only contact they have beyond the prison walls.
