The Last Mile (TLM) unlocks the human and economic potential of justice-impacted people through education and technology training.
With The Last Mile technical training, incarcerated men and women can evolve into highly skilled, motivated, and valuable professionals who deliver a return to those who invest in them.
The proof is in the data. Massively reduced recidivism. A growing roster of TLM partner organizations. And the unlocked potential of TLM alumni, whose lives have been transformed by their successes.

Our work began in San Quentin, where we successfully implemented a Business and Technology Accelerator program. The emphasis was on creating a curriculum focused on market-ready technical skills. The acceptance of the program by the students and Corrections officials was immediate, permanent, and successful. TLM training is now offered in 13 facilities across seven states.
