Becoming successful in your life, your career, and your community: with the right tools, you can make it happen. At Alison, we are dedicated to giving anyone who wants join the workforce the opportunities they need to succeed.
We believe that education is the key to success, and free education that you can take at your own pace is the key to freedom. The formerly incarcerated are just as entitled to this as anybody else.
So, if you’ve been in prison and are now looking to gain new skills for a better future (or if you know somebody who is), we want to help. Let’s make a change together.
Do you think the prison system can be improved? Could education, giving people the skills they need to succeed, be a better alternative to incarceration? Alison believes it is, and we’ve taken action on this belief. In upstate New York a young offender by the name of Dylan Lewis was released from the threat of incarceration after having successfully completed two courses on Alison. Discover the story here.
