Over twenty years ago, federal funding for higher education was cut from prisons nationwide.

​Hundreds of thousands of men and women were devastated. Those trying to change their lives during lengthy sentences and hoping to be better equipped to provide for their families upon release were left without access to a resource we are best equipped to provide.

UCLA can fulfill its commitment to academic freedom by helping to bring higher education back to CIW and support courses and programs at Barry J. Nidorf  Juvenile Hall (BJN) and the Custody to Community Transitional Reentry Program (CCTRP) for women.

Other facilities courses and programs held at:

  • Central Juvenile Hall
  • Camp Joseph Scott
