It's not my work. It's my passion!
?What makes us different
Credibility. Authenticity. We've been there. We're still connected. We lived the life. We sat in the cell. We witnessed the trauma first hand.
To reach, touch, and change the lives of individuals with disadvantaged backgrounds through advocacy, mentoring, and policy change.  
To help inspire others with similar backgrounds as myself to excel beyond what society and life circumstances have set to be the norm. 
To provide mentoring and educational counseling to individuals returning from incarceration and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds so that they may position themselves to start building their career as opposed to obtaining temporary employment.

Pen Pal 



Studies have shown that incarcerated people who maintain consistent contact and connection with society during their sentences have a lower recidivism rate than those who do not. Become a Pen Pal today. No information of yours would be shared with the inmate. We use our PO box and you only share your first name. 
Reentry is challenging on many levels. Within three years of release, 67.8 percent of people are rearrested, and within five years, 76.6 percent are rearrested. Having a mentor to assist in this process is extremely critical. Are you a formerly incarcerated person looking to help out? Consider becoming a PCtP Mentor!
Tutors will provide non-classroom, academic instruction to scholars for proactive or remedial purposes. Tutors will conduct one tutoring session per week in person (public library or college library) or electronically (phone, text, email, video call) and establish & assess weekly and semester goals. Bachelor's degree preferred. Commitment: 2-4 hours per week.
