Inside-Out Canada

Thanks to the generous support of the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation, Inside-Out Canada is based at Laurier's  Faculty of Social Work. The Inside-Out program brings incarcerated students and campus-enrolled students together as classmates in semester-long college or university courses. Classes are held in correctional facilities, and are taught using a circle pedagogy and collaborative dialogue aimed to foster egalitarian and collective learning.

What we do: 

* Teach university or college based classes in institutional and community correctional facilities with both criminal justice involved and campus enrolled students together in the classroom

* Provide annual Instructor Trainings for educators interested in setting up their own programs and teaching Inside-Out courses in their local communities 

* Provide workshops in prisons, community organizations and universities introducing people to our innovative pedagogy and providing public education and awareness about issues facing criminalized peoples and education 

* We offer ongoing support and resources to the network of people who are launching Inside-Out-inspired programming in Canada. 

*We coordinate a Canadian alumni network, for former Inside-Out students who want to continue working together to address issues of education, social justice and imprisonment.
