The Prisoner’s Journey® has been changing lives in prisons around the world since 2014. From the beginning, qualitative stories and testimonies of program impact had been shared, but we wanted empirical proof to show that the program was creating lasting life change.
In 2021, Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion was commissioned to conduct a comprehensive, longitudinal evaluation of the program. Empirical evidence was found that proved that this program truly transforms prisoners’ lives. Findings shows that through increasing religious engagement, The Prisoner’s Journey increases indicators of successful rehabilitation and actions that typically lead to positive culture change in prisons.
