Jail Education Programs

Jail Education and Transition Program

JET Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a dignified, nourishing environment intent on helping incarcerated individuals gain knowledge, education, awareness, and skills to grow independently and collectively. The JET program sets the goal of preparing men and women to re-enter the community safely, as productive members of society.

Located within the jail, our program offers case management, individual counseling, and a wide variety of classes. We oversee various levels of men’s programming including a Transitions unit, as well as an array of support services and classroom activities offered to women. We cater our focus on criminogenic risk factors by addressing: antisocial behaviors and personality patterns, mental health issues, substance abuse history, risky associates, family/marital dynamics, school/work, and leisure and recreation. Our program is always looking for cutting edge evidence based techniques to address these factors, and for this reason many of our offerings integrate trauma informed and mindfulness based modalities.
