SCSU INSIDE OUT PRISON EXCHANGE PROGRAM
In 2017, Amy participated in Temple University's Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program training and launched the SCSU Inside-Out program at the Manson Youth Institution (MYI) in Cheshire, CT.
The SCSU Inside-Out course, which is held inside the MYI prison, includes SCSU undergraduates and incarcerated men at MYI in a transformative learning experience grounded in inter-group dialogue. All students earn 3 credits towards their undergraduate degree. Prison education programs have been consistently linked to improved outcomes for incarcerated people during and after prison.
This Summer 2017 SCSU Inside-Out Summary offers more information about the program, including student feedback. The next class is scheduled to run during the Fall 2018 semester.

The cost of running each Inside-Out course at SCSU is $4,500. This amount pays for Inside students' tuition and textbooks and is covered 100% by private donors.
Your donation allows this program to run. All contributions are welcome. When 200 people give $25 each, we meet our goal! Donations are tax-deductible and 100% goes the tuition and books costs of incarcerated students.
