The “Life Skills Prison Ministry” program is currently being taught 5 days a week, 2 1/2 hours per day. Class participation is highly encouraged throughout the course and practical application is conducted in the form of team discussions/workshop to help prepare the inmates for a successful return into society when released.
The program is faith based using God'd Word (The Bible) as the foundation.
Prior to release inmates are provided opportunities to learn vital skill sets necessary that will enable them to succeed in responsible roles on returning to society. The “Life Skills Prison Ministry” program is designed to begin the process of successful adjustment.
Inmates are provided interactive classes with appropriate materials and workshops with opportunities for being mentored while in detention and continuing on once released.
Employment and Addiction Programs.
Finding meaningful employment is critical to inmates success once they are released. Information for employment research on hundreds of job opportunities is provided to each inmate and can be found on the OUTREACH (Employment) buttons on this website. They are provided with materials to help find safe havens and resources to overcome addictions such as anger, drugs and/or alcohol abuse, or to learn essential skills such as financial planning. For a complete listing see Program Topics and Outreach.
This program is accomplishing its goals based on feedback and testimonies from inmates who have completed the course. Many have said that it has changed their lives and many have also made commitments to change their attitudes and ways of behaving. Some have requested that the complete program be sent to their families because they felt their families also needed to learn what they had learned in this program as well. Some graduates have requested the prison administration make this program a prerequisite to many other classes because what it addresses is so foundational. And many have requested the “Life Skills Prison Ministry” program be expanded from 1 week to 2 weeks and allow them to attend the class series more than once.
The "Behavior Modification Through Learning Life Skills" program is a Prison Ministry program and is currently being taught at the Wake County Detention Center, Raleigh NC.
