Houston is giving inmates the opportunity to dream again through a mission called The Prison Entrepreneurship Program. It was was created in 2004 to prepare soon-to-be-released inmates for life on the outside. The program offers courses in character, life skills, and business development. It also matches convicted felons with top executives, entrepreneurs and MBA students who serve as coaches and mentors. The organization now has a new and improved space in East Downtown. There will be a grand opening celebration in October and if you want to learn more about the program or volunteer you can visit PEP.org
