Invitation to Join JFF's Normalizing Education Collective!

With support from the Ascendium Education Group and the Ichigo Foundation, Jobs for the Future’s Center for Justice & Economic Advancement is excited to launch the Normalizing Education Collective (The Collective), a year-long community of practice designed to support non-profit postsecondary institutions nationwide as they explore building or expanding high quality postsecondary pathways in prison that lead to opportunities for economic advancement.  

Through this national collective, JFF will focus on facilitating connections and collaboration that enable sharing of best practices. We will provide access to crucial tools and resources through JFF’s Normalizing Education Resource Center and the Resource Community for Higher Education in Prison (RCHEP) online learning platform that help strengthen the capacity of our institutional partners leading this important work. All community of practice members will have access to a monthly newsletter elevating critical resources, quarterly workshops on key challenges and solutions faced by leaders in this space, and peer learning, problem-solving, and mentorship through the Collective’s hub. 

If you would like to learn more and be engaged in the Normalizing Education Collective, please complete this Interest Form signaling your desire to join.  

We are also excited to invite you to the official launch event for the Collective on May 15th from 12-2PM ET. Specific details will be shared with all who complete the Interest Form, providing your preferred communication method. 

Please send any questions you may have to

We look forward to seeing you at the inaugural convening on May 15th!
