– Former education program participant
Amadeusz facilitates an education program for youth aged 18-35 who are incarcerated at the Toronto South Detention Centre, the Toronto East Detention Centre, and the Vanier Centre for Women. The goal of this program is to provide young people who are in detention with the opportunity, resources and support to complete their high school education and to explore, prepare for and attend post-secondary schooling. Take a look at our process flowchart for more information.
Prosper works with young people aged 18-29 with firearm related charges throughout incarceration and co-ordinates existing systems to support their transition to community with the aim to reduce their involvement in future violence and crime.
