INMATE TUTOR TRAINING
Since our founding in 2003, Literacy Pros of Jacksonville has partnered with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office to train inmates to tutor fellow inmates. This program continues today to help inmates improve literacy skills as needed to reduce recidivism, improve life skills and increase rates of successful employment and reentry upon release.
Correctional, reentry and rehabilitation facilities are encouraged to contact Literacy Pros to develop a #Blue4Books, Teen Read2Lead or literacy tutor program at no charge.
