Children with Incarcerated Parents Wellness Program | Vox Press

December 7, 2020 - - Posted by

Children of incarcerated parents are significantly more likely than are other children to drop out of school, to have difficulty securing employment once their education is complete, to participate in abusive and violent relationships, and to face arrest and incarceration themselves as adults. The proposed program is the only one of its kind that addresses not only the educational challenges of incarcerated persons, but also their children. Vox Press will conduct a series of workshops that will take place once a week during prison visitation hours at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl, Mississippi, and Washington Correctional Facility in Greenville, Mississippi. The program will offer students an alternating balance of direct instruction, facilitated classroom discussion and individual creative assignments.
