Hi Danny! I totally share your drive. I believe the best place to fix society is where society ends: prisons.
At BeCode, we are going to pilot our first coding training inside a prison in Belgium this year (in fact, it would have started if covid hadn't arrived). This pilot will be done as part of a European initiative: free2code-initiative.eu/ but we plan to continue beyond and iterate.
I'm curious how your program is going, what tool(s) you use with the inmates, and if we can help each other!
I really wish you luck on this program! If you find that the students need some motivation or hope, message me. I would absolutely be open to spending 30 minutes on a video call if you have those capabilities inside the prison.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
