Distance Learning Programs

Every six month cycle includes stand alone programs that offer instruction in a variety of subjects. If the program proves popular it might become an ongoing project.

This part of our programming is the most flexible and is constantly changing. It allows an exciting opportunity for volunteers who want to take leadership on their own project and create something valuable. Those who subscribe to the Prisoner Express Newsletter hear about these new programs and then send back an enrollment form with their interests.

We invite you to view, print, and mail our programs to anyone currently incarcerated who does not have access to this website.
