Creative Corrections Education Foundation – provides educational opportunities for young adults generally between the ages of 18-27, who have a parent incarcerated on parole.
CCEF has awards several scholarships for young adults of the incarcerated each year, assisting them with enrollment cost to college and trade schools nationwide.
CCEF’s Right Path Program Beaumont, Texas – provides educational opportunities for young adults in the community of Beaumont/Nederland and Port Arthur, Texas by providing financial aid for enrollment to Lamar State College Port-Arthur, Texas and Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), Training Academy in Nederland, Texas.
These applicants may or may not have a parent incarcerated and our mission with this program is to assist young adults in returning to school to obtain their GED or trade certificate.
The Right Path Program Beaumont (when funding is available), provides financial aid to qualified students in the community yearly who were in need of financial assistance for enrollment cost.
CCEF is a non-profit and relies on donation support to operate. We are always in need of donation support from the local community, local businesses, corporations and the incarcerated. Without community support, we would not be able to assist so many young adults who are struggling to make ends meet due to lack of job skills or education.

How the incarcerated can make a difference on reducing Second Generation Crime
- CCEF is asking the incarcerated to donate once a month, the price of a candy bar, to help send a young adult of an incarcerated parent to school.
- Every penny that is donated from the incarcerated will go directly towards a scholarship.
- No incarcerated donated funds will ever be used for overhead cost, administrative fees or staff salaries.
- Incarcerated donated funds received from a particular state will stay in that state to fund a young adult’s scholarship.
- For example, if an individual is incarcerated in the state of New York and donates to the foundation, the donated funds will be used to award a scholarship to a young adult in New York.
- The only exception would be if the young adult attends college in Florida, the scholarship award would come from the New York funds.
How the public can make a difference on reducing Second Generation Crime
- Donors have the option of funding a scholarship for young adults of the incarcerated in any state nationwide.
- Donors can choose to donate to the Right Path Program.
- Donors can fund a scholarship in the name of a love one.
- Donations can be given to fund a $5000, $1000 dollar scholarship or any amount you choose.
- Donors will receive a thank you letter appropriate for IRS Charitable Giving.
- Our progress on scholarship awards will be continually updated on this website displaying the state and number of awards given to date.
