#JERSEY

During the Spring 2021 semester, the Petey Greene Program New Jersey partnered with the #rutgers University Mountainview Community to offer one-on-one virtual tutoring services to returning citizens enrolled at Rutgers University. PGP NJ tutors supported students matriculating to Rutgers, in courses ranging from writing-intensive seminars to statistics.

The Mountainview Community provides wrap-around services and support for NJ-STEP students continuing their college degree work at Rutgers University’s
New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden campuses.

The partnership has proven successful and continues this summer!

Kylinn joined the Petey Greene Program at @montclairstateu in 2018 and and just graduated, having served as the President of Montclair's PGP leadership team during her senior year.

During the pandemic, she really stepped up her #advocacy by hosting a
"Welcome Home Holiday Drive" via Amazon to collect winter supplies for
those granted early release by New Jersey Senate Bill 2519.

"My experience as a tutor and campus leader with the Petey Greene Program has been influential not only in my academic aspirations but more importantly in my perspective. I will be continuing my education and working towards a Master’s Degree in social research and analysis this fall at Montclair State where I will continue researching the justice system and those impacted by it. I hope to continue tutoring and being a part of Petey Greene for many years to come!"

Con-GRAD-ulations, Kaylinn!

Paul is one of the FOUNDING members of The Petey Greene Program at Swarthmore College. While visiting the Eastern State Penitentiary ( @easternstate ) in Philadelphia, the nation's first penitentiary and now a historical site, he and a few new freshman friends saw our brochure in the gift shop. They were already seeking out ways to engage in prison abolition on campus and understood the immense value of supporting incarcerated folks' freedom dreams through education. It was a perfect storm - they reached out to Philly's regional manager, Emma, who was a Swarthmore alum herself, and started the process of formalizing the partnership.


Fast forward four years and Paul leaves his legacy as co-president of The Petey Greene Program and a Mellon Mays undergraduate fellow, among many other accomplishments. A huge shout out to Paul and his fellow campus leadership team at Swarthmore for starting something that will endure far beyond your time on campus and will reach the lives of many tutors and students to come.


Thank you to @thelangcenter for your continuous support of our programming at @swarthmorecollege !

We congratulate Lynne for earning her master's degree in Criminal Justice from Boston University while single-handedly running the PGP MA program and caring for her family. She truly is our PGP superwoman!

"Thank you to all the amazing people who have supported me throughout this chapter of my life. Each and every one of you has given me the courage to take on this challenge. Now as a graduate of criminal justice, I am excited to take all that I have learned and my life experiences to the next level."

Can we make some serious noise for Lynn in the comments? A little encouragement (even on social media) goes a long way!

I cannot wait to join this team!
Good morning. I hope you are well today. Could you please gather support for this and share it with everyone in MA that can help? Personal testimonials to the legislators below (on how youth courts would have benefited them or the people they worked with) would help tremendously. Thank you so, so much. Hi, friends. It will only take 5 minutes to help me in a really meaningful way. Bill H1364 (bipartisan), An Act to Fund Youth Courts, is building momentum in the State House. https://malegislature.gov/Bills/191/H1364 However, it REALLY needs support from people like you to actually get it passed. This bill would allocate money to help youth who commit first-time low-level crimes or misdemeanors from getting a criminal record (which can keep them from getting into college or the military). Instead, they would be assigned a mentor, attend restorative conferences/meetings, get support for themselves and their families, and attend a hearing by a jury of peers (“youth court”) to find out how much and what kind of community service to complete. Although there are over 1100 youth courts nationwide, there is only 1 in Massachusetts (New Bedford/Fall River). You can support this bill - which will be at hearing at some point within the next few weeks by the following: What you can do: 1. Pleas share this - especially with people of influence 2. Please write a group email telling your name, town/city and why you support H1364, An Act to Fund Youth Courts. If you have a personal story because you have dealt with these issues professionally or personally, please give specifics. If you have no direct experience, you may reference that youth courts: keep adolescents, who often act impulsively or out of peer pressure, from meeting more serious criminals in the criminal justice system; give support to youth who have not had adequate resources or support in the past; lead to much lower recidivism rate Please send your email to these members of the Joint Judiciary Committee: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] For more info on youth courts, please see: www.globalyouthjustice.org THANK YOU so, so much!

I spent 30 years behind bars as a prison physician and whole heartedly support educating the incarcerated and exposing individuals to the value of giving back to a segment of society that they haven't experienced. I'm glad AARP chose Jim Farrin and the Petey Greene Program for their award 'Living Lives With Purpose'. In 1987 when I was placed in the Nevada prison system for 4 years as a payback for a NHSC scholarship I found that my greatest joy was creating programs where I could teach the inmates. It's one thing to take care of their medical problems, it's another to give them hope that they have what it takes to live in society where they are an asset to themselves, their family and society.
I am a new tutor and appreciate the support and direction I have received from Petey Greene. This is my first time working with persons in prison, and it is most satisfying.
This page is for supporters of the Formerly Incarcerated College Graduates Network. The page will post stories of formerly incarcerated college graduates, updates about our network, and news about prison and post-prison education programs. The FICGN is a network of people who have been to prison and either received a college degree there or obtained one afterward. It includes people from varied educational backgrounds-- AA to JD/PhD/EdD as well as careers ranging from staff members to State and Federal Administrators, Executive Directors, Attorneys, Professors, and a College President. https://www.facebook.com/FICGN/
