Success & Retention

Success and retention

Education Changes Lives.

这不仅适用于监狱外的人,也适用于囚犯——尤其是囚犯. We come from circumstances where education was either not an option; for most of us, 生存是我们唯一担心的事情. 最具讽刺意味的是,正是这种缺乏教育的状况导致我们认为自己别无选择.

Prison is one of the most hopeless places; for those of us who face lengthy sentences, even more so. We all made mistakes that led us to where we are. But now that we are here, what comes next? Certainly, there is more to life than to sit idly in his cell and waste away, but for many years, we had no hope of doing more. 没有任何东西告诉我们,我们仍然有可能过上富有成效的生活. All we had were long suppressed dreams of what could have been.

Education however changed this kind of thinking. It not only gave us knowledge, it transformed our perspectives. 它帮助我们认识到更美好未来的可能性,让我们仍然可以为社会做出实质性的贡献."

-Brian Yang/Pelican Bay Scholar

David Nguyen
My parents always wanted me and my siblings to pursue education. Because there were so few opportunities back in Vietnam, 他们认为生活在美国可以让我们有机会过上更好的生活. 有一段时间,我父母的梦想似乎只是一个梦想. 

我在2015年秋天开始了我的旅程,作为少数开始CR鹈鹕湾学者试点项目的学生之一, and I’ve watched it grow from a tentative one class a semester to a full-fledged college program that runs yearlong; classes are begin offered from morning to night and students now have the privilege of taking on full schedules, if they choose to. It’s this choice that gives the real college experience; it’s this choice that makes us feel like we’re no longer prisoners, but actual students. 我记得很多个晚上,我和我的朋友K走回公寓,谈论我们所学到的一切,以及如果我们继续利用CR提供的服务,我们的未来将会是什么样子的可能性. 

感谢CR,我现在可以说我父母的梦想不再只是一个梦想.

Education has always been an aspiration of mine. I believe that for one to do better they have to know better. 

For me, 当我还是个孩子的时候就进了监狱,这让我不得不忍受自己当初做出的错误选择, among them was dropping out of school. 通过CR鹈鹕湾奖学金项目获得副学士学位是我一生中难得的机会. 行为和社会科学的学位不仅给了我所需的工具,让我把自己变成一个更好的人,也让我有机会为我的家庭做出积极的贡献, community and society as a whole. 这是我通过教育实现康复的一个高潮. 凭借我在攻读学位过程中获得的知识,我确信我出狱时不会是一个罪犯,而是一个受过大学教育、有目标的人,为此我永远心存感激!
