Teach in Prison DeCal

The Teach In Prison DeCal team program is accepting applications for the coming Spring ’19 Semester.

Teach in Prison is a student-run DeCal class that sends Cal student tutors to work with incarcerated students at San Quentin Prison (SQ). The primary tutoring groups work on phonics, proof-reading papers, and grant proposals, counting and numbers, H.S. math, GED prep, and more.

Interested in social justice or teaching? Heard of the school-to-prison pipeline or racialized mass incarceration in the US?

If you’ve been wondering how to get involved and make a lasting, positive change – this is the opportunity for you! Teach in Prison (TIP) is a Spring 2019 DeCal dedicated to helping students at San Quentin earn their GEDs and further their education.

Since 2000, Teach in Prison DeCal has taken UC Berkeley undergraduates to tutor inside San Quentin State Prison.
In cooperation with San Quentin’s Warden’s Office, the Robert E. Burton Adult School, and UC Berkeley, Cal students have been helping incarcerated individuals work towards academic goals in a professional and compassionate manner. We look forward to continuing this partnership and expand the TIP family.

Please follow the link to apply by November 16th: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/17C4A1AsCr4XEpbC7Z5v6haDB0YdAnWU-DsmaRGzt2xY/edit
