Cucamonga with the California Institution for Women. These are all in California and what I find the most interesting is the fact that recidivism is reduced by 43% if an inmate receives an education while in Prison. What other program has these kinds of numbers. It truly speaks for itself. Question 2: One question that deserves attention is whether a "faith" based program can have an impact on transition success. Please read the linked article about the program at the Walker State Prison in Georgia, and then submit a paragraph response on your reaction. ( Georgia ). I really don’t know where to start, whatever the heck they were talking about in that article sounds like it is way too good to be true. I just don’t see painting and guitar lessons helping a man after he is released. What they described sounds like a summer camp or something. I think faith based programs mean well but God is not the answer to everything. We have to deal with real issues that these men face and not just pray and god will help remove the burden. I think I would like to see their numbers, I would like to know the recidivism rate for people in this program before I really cast a judgement. I don’t see this working in California. I think a Sureno is going to attack any Norteno he sees. Talking about what you are good at compared to learning a trade and having experience like these inmates would have if they were in Michigan like I mentioned above. I think faith based can have an impact on transition, I just don’t know what that impact may be. But if God or faith keeps a man out of prison then I am absolutely all for it. I just know in my experience that is really really rare. The bible is the first thing they ask for when they get arrested and the last thing they leave at the door. Question3: In my own experience as a prison program manager, parole officer, superintendent and now inmate mentor, I have seen many a well programmed inmate fail immediately after release, usually characterized by return to old associates, and related drug use. On the positive side, I have seen a greater number succeed with pro-social support by family, community and church, and with a stable income source. But not all

offenders fit into either of these categories. So, considering the many program components and community resources that you have read about what is your position on what combination of factors can provide an inmate with sufficient pro-social tools to overcome the anxiety of transition, and the lure of returning to a criminal life style?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
