Dear Kid CAT,
I’ve read many of your articles, and they are inspiring and uplifting. With the help of two other inmates, we want to start a “mentorship” program. I’ve been in Corcoran over 10 years, and with all these new youth offenders coming in, we thought it would be best to help some of them out getting ready for youth board, having a group where we can talk and help one another. I’m also a youth offender.
We are in the beginning stages of starting a youth support group, and I was hoping maybe you can share with me your curriculum, by-laws and guidelines that can help us here. We’d be really grateful for any help you can give.
Great news! We have recently completed our curriculum packet and facilitators’ manual to be distributed to your institutions. However, we cannot send it to individuals other than your group sponsor, volunteer or your community partnership manager, so have them reach out to our sponsor.
Hope this helps you in your endeavor to create a program like ours at your institution. Continue to be inspired and keep up the good work!
