Over the past 30 years America’s prison population has increased to more than 2 million, representing the world’s highest
rate of incarceration. The costs associated with this growth have been well documented and is summarized in the 2015 Bureau of
Justice Report stating “Total state spending on corrections is approximately $80 billion per year, the bulk of which is spent on
state prisons. In the previous twenty years, goods and services associated with the corrections system across the nation
quadrupled, making it the second fastest growing expense of state budgets, trailing only Medicaid.
A current national recidivism rate of 47% means that the majority of incarcerated individuals return to state prison within three
years of their release.
While the costs associated with America’s incarceration has been scrutinized, the examination of outcomes receives less
attention. What are the costs to the under served communities to which released former inmates return: health systems,
schools, public safety, wasted human capital? The Redemption Project offers a multidisciplinary solution to a complex,
multifaceted problem, transforming lives of youth, men and women from schools and juvenile centers, inside correctional
institutions through re-entry back to the community.
The Redemption Project has received approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections to launch our program in
20 of their 26 correctional facilities along with 35 prisons in the State of California. Also, TRP is set to implement our Character
Building / Aggression Replacement Training modules within 250 Juvenile Centers and 100+ schools.
The Redemption Project offers a non-accredited certificate from various major academic institutions. The courses are designed for each
participant to receive an activity-based curriculum that is facilitated by an instructor through hands-on training, classroom learning and
on-line instruction. The is composed of the following:
