Tell us about yourself & your interest in prison dharma: (answer required) .
My interest is to be of service when and where I can to help prisoners break through the barriers that keep them from rehabilitation and leading a happy and fulfilling life. I was raised by the state of California in juvenile halls and other institutions and have a deep affinity for children growing up in the system. I am currently attending college to work one day in the juvenile probation department in some capacity.

We have a great webinar coming up, that you may be interested in called "The Path to Freedom." Its a course for those who are interested in working with prison populations and youth and also just in general in our lives. I've taken it 3 times already and I highly recommend it!

Thanks for the Friend request. It sounds as though you've had a journey of your own and have been able to shape a life for yourself. I admire your acccomplishment and your intention to help kids in similar situations. As you know, young people need older, wiser folks to care about them. Good luck in your stuides. Since you're interested in juvenile justice you might be interested in the book I wrote about my 10 years teaching minors in an adult jail, "I Don't Wish Nobdoy to Have a Life Like Mine: Tales of Kids in Adult Lockup."
