Summer Teaching in Prison

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering – Hebrews 13:3 NIV.

As an adjunct professor, it is hard to find summer teaching jobs at local colleges. Because unless your tenured teacher the availability of working is slim to none. However, there is one nonprofit organization that is in need of teachers every semester throughout the year. In fact, you are almost always guaranteed to have students and less likely to the class won’t be cancelled due to low enrollment.

I find it an absolute privilege to teach for Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prisons in Ossining, NY. The incarcerated students need education, as it boosts their morale while inside. It gives the a sense of purpose to be better person while providing the necessary knowledge and technical skills to re-enter society. I challenge you to step forward to teach your major inside a local correctional facility. You will find that giving back so others can gain education is very rewarding.

In Hebrews 13:3, God reminds us to remember those in prison, so this is why, I teach there. I am super excited this summer, as I will teaching at a correctional facility both inside and remotely. The online course is a first for with them. I am very honored to be selected by Hudson Link and NY State Department of Corrections to teach this way. So pray the technology works and that the online class is a huge success, as it is the wave of the future for all.
