We are pleased to welcome the following new volunteers to our Advisory Boards:

The Prison Entrepreneurship Program is able to operate with a lean staff thanks to the tremendous efforts of more than 650 annual volunteers. This includes hundreds of executives, entrepreneurs, bankers, MBA students and business leaders who join us throughout the year for our monthly in-prison events or who serve as remote Business Plan Advisors (editing business plans and conducting market research for our participants). Many others serve in roles such as mentors, teachers at our Tuesday evening “eSchool” program offered in both Dallas and Houston as well as hosts for our monthly family dinners at each of our three transition homes.

We are deeply grateful for all of their contributions.

However, the contributions of our advisory board members exceed those of all others. Almost all of them serve in multiple volunteer roles within our organization. But more critically, they provide tremendous support to our staff and our 7-member governing board. Through their contributions of time, talent and treasure, these advisors are tremendous resources for PEP.
