Prison-to-Professionals

$10,000 goal

Campaign created 1 month ago
The average cost of a public university or college is ~$8,000. After grants and financial aid, the average out-of-pocket cost is just under $2,000. One of the biggests barriers to higher education is finances. We hope to defray the cost of education for our scholars. Please help us along our journey. 

Program Description:​ The goal of the Prison-to-Professionals (P2P) program is to help people
with criminal convictions obtain higher education and to push them towards their full potential.
Our scholars receive college/loan application assistance, SAT/GRE prep, an individual
development plan (IDP), college readiness workshops, leadership training, paid mini-internship
(if applicable), sitting in on college courses (before enrolling), access to tutors, scholarship
opportunities, community building experiences, access to national meetings, and 2-yrs or more
of mentoring. Formerly incarcerated college graduates serve as mentors. All the workshop
facilitators are Masters degree holders, certified K-12 educators, certified career counselors,
and combined have 30+ years working with at-risk, low-income youth in Baltimore.
