JAIL EDUCATION SOLUTIONS
Over 10 million people cycle through this nation’s jails annually; more than half return to jail upon release. Inmates typically have little to occupy their minds and time during the average one to two-month stay. JES will revolutionize the jail experience by converting the TV into a medium for change that informs and inspires. GED and literacy content, health and legal information, as well as inspirational success stories from the formerly incarcerated will help inmates learn and build positive connections with the community when they return home.
Our solution is simple: JES is a social enterprise that creates, collects, and distributes educational and inspirational television programming. We use the television as a medium for change that informs and inspires.
Our web and mobile platform bridges the transition back home and helps formerly incarcerated people make meaningful connections to the community. Through this effort we intend to unlock the immense potential now perpetually behind bars.
