Education counseling in prisons

From 2008 to 2011, the JGU Center for Continuing Academic Education took part in a program providing for the counseling of prison inmates on educational and vocational aspects. The participating facilities were those in Rohrbach, Frankenthal, Koblenz, and Trier. In this program, the specially developed "Skills Identification Workshop in Correctional Facilities" proved to be a successful instrument for determining inmates' personal strengths and abilities. The program is being sponsored by the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Social Affairs, Labor, Health, and Demography and the European Social Fund.
