Academic Support Program

Our Academic Support Program is for women who have had contact with the criminal justice system within the last ten years. Whether you’re already in college and need more support, or want to explore the possibility of college for the first time, we’re here to help.

The best part about our program? Community support. Women in our programs share resources and experiences and help each other on their journeys to success.
