Phillip D, PEP Graduate and Winner of the Class 20 Business Plan Competition

On Friday, December 13, 2013, over seventy men walked across the graduation stage at PEP. Among them stood the 1,000th graduate to earn a PEP diploma!

Please take a moment to celebrate this momentous occasion by looking through the family portraits with the graduates. Hundreds of family members were joined by a large group of PEP’s executive volunteers who were there to cheer for the graduates of Class “Tenacious” 20! Several of these volunteers serve as “honorary family members” for the men whose families did not attend the ceremony.

This week in prison, Class 21 also completed our Prep Class (the precursor to the full Business Plan Competition that they will start next month). We also completed our “peer panels,” the final evaluations of prospective Class 22 participants. These evaluations are conducted by PEP’s graduates who are in the “servant leadership” phase of their work with PEP … sowing back into the program as our volunteer leaders before they are released from prison.

Class 21’s Kickoff is on Friday, January 24, 2014 from 11:30 am – 5:00 pm. If you would like to join us, please register here.

See you in prison!
