10-17-17 Why Involved Prison Education
Steven King/Clark University

Students and teachers, tutors and mentors, organizers and activists—all those involved in prison education programs can speak to the many overlapping benefits for individuals, families, and communities. In this follow-up panel to “Why Bother with Prison Education?”, participants will discuss the goals of various programs, offer reflections on their own experiences, and provide further information on volunteer opportunities for those interested in getting involved. Panelists will include: Clark University professor Shelly Tenenbaum (Sociology), who taught last year at MCI-Norfolk, a medium security prison for men, through the Boston University program; Claude Kaitare, a former Clark student who worked with Tenenbaum as a teaching assistant; and Steffen Seitz from the Petey Greene Program, an organization that trains undergraduate and graduate students to tutor in prison educational programs.

Co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities and the Department of Sociology at Clark University
