The Partakers Empowerment Program is a re-entry initiative that aspires to transform the lives of incarcerated women and men by promoting access to higher education, developmental networks, and resources to get started.
Partakers is a non-profit organization that supports Massachusetts prison education by coordinating teams of volunteers who mentor incarcerated women and men as they pursue higher education through the Boston University Prison Education Program, the Boston College Prison Initiative, the Tufts Prison Initiative, and the Emerson Prison Initiative. https://partakers.org/
Through its College Behind Bars mentoring program, incarcerated people enhance skills critical to completing a college degree, and build trusting personal relationships. Both activities significantly increase their chances for success when they return to the community. The Partakers Empowerment Program contributes to this mission.
Our goal for the year: $35,000 for 30 students
