This page is now the resource page for the PEP-CPOC-OYCR Forum that took place at Cal Poly Pomona on May 5, 2023. The forum was a dynamic, engaging, and comprehensive discussion on the imminent implementation of SB 823. The forum focused on best practices among various organizations and the importance of having PEP bring academic and life-skills programming to incarcerated youth in 58 county juvenile probation departments in California. Formerly incarcerated students from Rising Scholars and Project Rebound discussed how education transformed their lives. Representatives from the Department of Rehabilitation discussed their commitment in supporting incarcerated and post-incarcerated youth with their higher education, vocational training , and employment goals.
The 2024 'Progress Report' Forum will be held at the Kellogg West Conference at Cal Poly Pomona on Friday, April 26.
