Journal Entry

The first class of the KNIGHT Program (Knowledge + Networks Inspire Genius and Hidden + Talents) was approved to start in September at the Jesup Federal Satellite Low facility. We are excited to work with our first group of budding entrepreneurs and have organized a jam-packed 12-week curriculum that will catapult their businesses. We will leverage the immense amount of talent and experience on the compound to help provide lecture support and advice across industries.

We are hoping Prison Professors can help advocate this program to be rolled out across the BoP. We think it could be a game changer for so many justice-impacted individuals. I sent a paper to your email last week describing the program and why it is desperately needed in our country.
