The Difference We Make

Partakers’ College Behind Bars Program has proven to be extremely successful. Women and men in prison who have gone through the program show a 2% recidivism rate, compared with the national recidivism rate of 63%.

Our mentoring program has advanced the education of many people in prison who have graduated from Boston University.

Partakers has an active, involved volunteer base of over 300 people participating as mentors to women and men in 5 prisons throughout Massachusetts.

We have 30 faith-based and community organizations that sponsor  and support mentoring teams.
