Central Visitation Empowering Incarcerated Women – Making Choices Mission Partnership promotes, supports, and recruits mentor and teacher volunteers for the program “Making Choices.” This 10-week program taught at the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility is designed to teach and mentor decision-making skills to incarcerated women. With classroom learning time and weekly sessions with volunteer mentors, incarcerated women learn decision making skills rather than acting with reactionary thinking. Because of the dynamic value of the curriculum and the deeply intrinsic value of the one-to-one partnering relationship, the recidivism rate of Making Choices graduates is 8-12% compared to the Colorado average of 53%.
