San Quentin State Prison’s Last Mile

See also

Entrepreneurs Chris Reditz and Beverly Parenti launched The Last Mile in 2010 to provide inmates with a marketable skill upon their release. Before being accepted into the program, each inmate must complete the in-prison college program, demonstrate the ability to work well in a team atmosphere and complete a difficult application process. Then the inmates meet twice per week throughout the six month course, where they develop a business plan and learn about social media and technology. To date six inmates have graduated from the program and been released to society where they have obtained employment with technology firms (California-CNN, 11/21/2013).
