“The findings, from the largest-ever meta-analysis of correctional educational studies, suggest that prison education programs are cost effective, with a $1 investment in prison education reducing incarceration costs by $4 to $5 during

the first three years post-release.”

EDUCATION REDUCES RECIDIVISM

Teaching creative writing in prisons offers prisoners the chance to improve themselves. On release, if a formerly incarcerated person decides that pursuing education is a better choice than returning to old criminal habits, society benefits. That’s what we aim to achieve at Yardtime Literary Program.
