Volunteers teach classes from pre-college through post-graduate in the Indianapolis Women’s Prison to prepare students for a “future story” (or new beginning) when they get out. This program is now called the Kauffman Program after Kelsey Kauffman who was so instrumental in getting it started.
The mission of the Kauffman Program at the Indiana Women’s Prison is to cultivate success for women in prison who choose the transformative power of education. We provide paths to more opportunity in life through:
- The realization of each woman’s creative and intellectual potential
- The development of each woman’s positive self-image and ‘can-do’ attitude
- The learning of life skills that will improve competitiveness in the working world, and
- The commitment to becoming a positive member of her community.
Here’s how you can help:
