Respect Reduces Recidivism
College Guild provides non-traditional correspondence courses to prisoners across America. Many have no other access to education. Most receive no respect. Countless will eventually rejoin society.
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.
"I feel human again and not like some animal."
Our mission is to stimulate in prisoners an interest in lifelong learning by providing a selection of free, non-traditional correspondence courses. 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.
