Adult Education in Prison

Your prison sentence doesn’t have to stop you from reaching your goals.

There are programs you or a loved one can complete in prison that will improve life outcomes after release. One of those programs is HopeWorks’ adult education program. Through this program, inmates in Shelby County Division of Corrections can earn their HiSET. To enter the program, you have to enroll in HopeWorks’ Personal and Career Development within SCDC. Learn more about that program here.
