Petey Greene Tutoring Program

The Petey Greene Program supplements educational programming in correctional institutions by providing individualized tutoring to incarcerated people. We work to promote academic achievement in prison classrooms to support the future success of people in prison and to build stronger communities. To accomplish these goals, Petey Greene recruits, trains, and coordinates volunteers who serve as tutors in adult basic education, high school equivalency, and college programs in localprisons and jails. This year, Petey Greene is developing a new tutoring program to support students enrolled in Boston University’s Prison Education Program.
