Mission Statement

College Guild's mission is to stimulate in prisoners an interest in life-long learning by providing a selection of free, non-traditional courses designed to be both thought-provoking and fun, to encourage objectivity and creativity, and to relieve the boredom of prison life with an opportunity to spend time constructively. Our guiding belief is that "respect reduces recidivism."
