- Providing education opportunities to Utah's incarcerated

WhyBeInvolved

Personal note from Don Wright.  I became aware of the plight of prisoners when I spent five-plus years as a volunteer at the Utah State Prison.  I supervised the prison Family History Center where inmates used computers to do genealogy work.  I taught an Old Testament course and a New Testament course.  I taught a course I designed and titled Mentors from History that Can Change Your Life.

I became acquainted with more than a hundred prisoners.  As I got to know these men, I found many had a hunger for learning.  I met many who had enormous possibilities of accomplishing good things.  Yet, education options were extremely limited.

Something clicked and it became my mission to do what I could.  In addition  to the volunteer job, I have been at this challenging effort more than five years.  Thanks to the Utah Department of Corrections, exciting progress has been made the past six months.
