California Reentry Program

The California Reentry Program at San Quentin State Prison is an
independent advising program that seeks to cover a wide array of future
parolees’ needs. Our services include academic advising, referrals to
housing resources, job advice/placement, child-support issues, support
groups, etc. We provide one-on-one counseling with inmates who are
paroling within the next few weeks, months and years. They come to us with
questions about their future in regards to education, housing requests,
etc. and it’s our job to assess their current needs, experience and
interests, and support them in establishing a plan to achieve their goals
once paroled. Many of the men want to know how to get their GEDs, some
want an Associate of Arts degree, others have questions about what it
might take to open a hot dog stand or start a new career. We also help
fill out college/financial aid applications.

The information above can be found on the official website of California Reentry Program. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website:
