PBHA's Women\x{e2}\x{80}\x{99}s Empowerment and Prison Education Program

Purpose Statement

PBHA's Women\x{e2}\x{80}\x{99}s Empowerment and Prison Education Program (WEPEP) serves women transitioning from correctional facilities into their communities under conditional pre-release status. Take an hour out of your week to work with the women on academics (GED preparation such as arithmetic, reading, writing skills) or in searching for a job. With flexibility unlike many other programs, you will be able to choose the tutoring time most amenable to your schedule and have the opportunity to design your own curriculum (in the past, we have held book club, photography workshop, seminar on the workings of drugs, and many more). Classes run every weekday, primarily in the mornings. Your student may still be in high school or may have graduated thirty years ago.
