PEP volunteers help by investing their time and sharing their personal experiences and knowledge. Volunteers expose
in-custody students to substantive content that allows them to transform their lives. Each volunteer commits to one
90-minute session per week for seven weeks. Volunteers give presentations in groups in one of the following modules:
Academic Orientation, Life Skills, Enrichment.
Life Skills Module: Career Development, Soft Skills, Financial Literacy, Forgiveness & Healing, Building Healthy Relationships.
Enrichment Module: Creative Writing, Screenwriting, Shakespeare, Spoken Word, Yoga & Meditation, Modern Dance, Creative Expression, Mindfulness, Stand Up Comedy. PEP Art featured on NPR
There are three 7-Week PEP semesters during the year: Fall, Spring, Summer. There is a mandatory orientation session for new volunteers at the beginning of each PEP semester. See PEP Course Outlines. The Spring 2021 registration is closed. Spring courses will be taught from February 15-April 2. Our Summer Session will be from June 1-July 9.
