Arouet’s training programs in prison are designed to assist incarcerated women to take the first steps towards a new productive future. Our partnerships with state and local organizations give us unique access to a population of women that are in desperate need of support and resources.

Our team runs various in-person and virtually classes, both in group and 1-on-1 formats, to prepare women for the first days and weeks of their release. This program focuses on foundational topics necessary for long-term success:

    • Life skills
    • Decision making
    • Local resources
    • Skills assessment
    • Financial basics
    • Goal setting

Our women graduate feeling motivated and empowered with the tools they need to re-enter society.


“Arouet opened my eyes and heart to a lot of topics that I will be utilizing when I get home! All around you are amazing and I can’t wait to sit down with you soon.”
