As mentioned, we will be showcasing several individuals who assisted in the creation, construction, and completion of our programs designed for youth (14-17 years of age), adult diversion to incarceration (18-24 years of age, low level offense), and adult pre/post release.
Our material and workshops take advantage of real people, real life, and real issues. Virtual participants throughout the pages are real and so is their story.
Duck is an integral part of our success as his experiences bring reality to each page within our 18-book programs, giving participants a sense of identity.
Duck, ex-felon, served 13 years on a 40, released on mandatory supervision…
Doing time: Been told what to do for the past 13 years, what to wear, how to walk, when to go to store, when to take a dump, and when to keep shut. These months out is out of control; not used to making choices, prison took all that away.
Participants are encouraged to respond to each life experience, facilitators then engage in group discussions surrounding the original statement, insight question, and participant response. I now ask readers to respond via comment section of each submission.
Insight: What life and everyday choices would you give up by going to prison?
2nd Chance University is a non-profit designed for those who have stumbled within our justice system as they regain their Commitment, Hope, and Empowerment. I welcome your stories to be added into our series.
