Default Anti-recidivism program with peer mentoring

Well, not exactly peers. The mentors are older inmates who have established credibility on the inside.


...the prison seemed sincere about helping Davon turn his life around. Linda had attended a presentation by John Pittman, an older prisoner who was going to be Davon’s mentor, pushing him away from gangs and towards planning for his life after release. Linda was deeply moved. “He touched my heart,” she said of Pittman.
It's a pilot project now.
