PHENND Fellows - Petey Greene Program Volunteer Coordinator
 
 
 
The Petey Greene Program provides free, high-quality academic tutoring for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated learners across 7 geographic regions in the northeast. In Philadelphia, PGP has provided tutoring in state, federal, and county level correctional facilities since 2015. In 2020, our mission expanded to include supporting returning citizens after their incarceration. Our volunteer tutors support people working toward an array of educational goals, including the GED, High School Equivalency, adult basic ed, English language learning, vocational certification exams, college coursework, etc. This year, we are offering both virtual and in-person tutoring programs across an array of prison, jail, reentry, and diversion programs in Philadelphia. We envision a world in which all incarcerated people have access to high-quality academic programs and we strive to inspire our alumni - both students and tutors - to become advocates, and to take on leadership roles that reimagine the criminal legal system.
