Soft Skills in Corrections – Inmates Teaching Inmates at Folsom State Prison The inmate facilitators of the “Pace Life Skills” courses at Folsom State Prison (Represa, CA), have created a powerful program to promote ongoing education, self-evaluation, and positive thinking among their peers. The inmate-led Life Skills program, a voluntary activity that occurs in the prison yard, boasts a waiting list of over 200 men.

This unique program has clear positive effects on its members. In an effort to replicate their success at other institutions, the facilitators of the program have detailed a manual for teaching soft, “life skills” in a prison setting, from inmate to inmate. They utilize Pace’s Life Skills 25 curriculum, but the power to change lives comes from the facilitators and their teaching process and methods, which reach beyond the program’s weekly class and into its members’ everyday lives.

“Words are inadequate to express our appreciation of how profoundly Pace Life Skills has transformed our lives. We know that saying “Thank You” is not enough, therefore we want to show you gratitude by living what we have learned and dedicating our time to passing this blessing on to others.” ~Folsom State Prison Pace Life Skills Facilitators, Spring 2016
