Located in select prisons across the country, the Prison Fellowship Academy® is an intensive, biblically based program that takes incarcerated men and women through a holistic life transformation process. Participants are guided by Prison Fellowship staff and volunteers to lead lives of purpose and productivity inside and outside of prison.
BUILDING SAFER COMMUNITIES—ONE TRANSFORMED LIFE AT A TIME
A cornerstone program of Prison Fellowship, the Academy guides participants to identify the life-controlling issues that led to their incarceration and take responsibility for its impact on their community. Using biblically based materials, the Academy specifically targets criminal thinking and behavior, life skills, addictions, victim impact, and prosocial culture change. The Academy aims to develop prisoners who have leadership potential to serve as positive peer mentors and supporters of a positive culture, based on Gospel-centered values, throughout prison systems. Those who complete the program and are preparing for release will have the opportunity to connect to post-release resources and support in metropolitan areas.
