This involves working with at-risk youth in schools, after-school programs, and our prison ministry partners who assist people transitioning into community from prison. Education efforts involve teaching MCC’s constituency about ways to interact with incarcerated individuals, families of the incarcerated, at-risk youth, and those re-entering the community from prison from a trauma informed perspective. This work will be done by working with the MCC National Mass Incarceration network and other staff, and local partners. Together they will create resources and learning tools and will conduct local trainings, learning tours, workshops and events.
