POPS (Pain of the Prison System) the Club

The POPS (Pain of the Prison System) the Club program is designed to inspire, nourish and empower youth who are impacted by incarceration to become more competent, confident, self-aware and connected to others and their communities. 

Writing, reading, mindfulness, art and leadership development are at the core of the POPS program, reducing feelings of stigma and shame, improving school performance, reconnecting with family, rejecting criminal behavior and increasing overall optimism.
