Children of Incarcerated Parent:
If a young adult between the ages of 18-27, has a parent/legal guardian incarcerated or on parole, he/she can qualify for a Creative Corrections Education Foundation scholarship to a community college, university or technical college.
Parolees and At-Risk Young Adults in Southeast Texas (Beaumont/Nederland/Port Arthur):
Parolees and At-risk young adults in the Beaumont/Nederland/Port Arthur area of Texas can apply to take a trade course at the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), Training Academy.
CCEF and ABC have a partnership to provide trade certificate courses to parolees and at-risk youth. Qualified applicants can enroll in the following ABC Training Academy courses: Core Safety 1 semester (10 weeks), Scaffold Builder 1 semester (10 weeks), Instrumentation 12 semesters (3 years), Industrial Carpentry 3 semesters (3/4 year), Pipefitting 12 semesters (3 years), Electrical 12 semesters (3 years) and Welding 6 semesters (1 1/2 years).
Our goal is to stop second generational crime by breaking the cycle of young adults following in their parents footsteps of going to prison.
Donation to CCEF will make a tremendous impact on the foundation achieving the above goal, making communities safer for all.
The foundation currently has partnerships with:
Texas Department Criminal Justice, New Mexico State Department of Corrections, Ohio Department Rehabilitation Corrections, New York State Department of Corrections, Colorado State Department of Corrections, Milwaukee County House of Correction, Virginia State Department of Corrections, Louisiana State Department of Corrections, Michigan State Department of Corrections, Wyoming State Department of Corrections, Mississippi State Department of Corrections and Arizona State Department of Corrections.
Visits to various state correctional facilities within these states are conducted to inquire donation support from the incarcerated offenders.
Money donated by an incarcerated person in a state will stay in that state. The only exception to this would be if the offender is in one state and the young adult is in another state, the scholarship funds would come from the state where the offender is incarcerated.
Offender donated funds will never be utilized to pay salaries or overhead cost. We believe the offenders should help with the cost to send young adults of the incarcerated to school.
To date, the offenders are contributing financially to the foundation and are excited about being part of the mission to give these young adults a better chance at life versus a criminal one.
We provide information about the foundation at conferences, charity clubs, through social media, local news interviews to include conducting CCEF presentations at various organizations and correctional facilities to aid us in spreading the word about the foundation, our mission and to obtain monetary donations.
