College Admission Opportunities and the Public Offender.
McCabe, M. Patrick; Driscoll, Brian
The University of Kentucky's Project NewGate is 1 of 6 federally funded demonstration projects in correctional education designed to (1) provide an intensive college preparatory and college-level educational program for a select number of federal prisoners at the Federal Youth Center in Ashland, Kentucky; (2) supplement the educational component with individual and group counseling sessions; and (3) extend the program beyond the release date through realistic prerelease planning and intensive postrelease followup. Accomplishments of the NewGate Program have been: (1) a total of 109 NewGate students have been successfully placed in academic and technical institutions following their release; (2) 4 former NewGate students have completed vocational training programs and are currently employed in related trades; (3) 1 NewGate student has received an Associate of Arts degree; (4) an additional 42 NewGate students have found satisfactory employment. Only 9 out of the 109 releases have failed to make satisfactory adjustment to the outside world. (Author/HS)
