The Petey Greene Program supplements education in prisons by preparing volunteers, primarily college students, to provide free, quality tutoring to support the academic achievement of incarcerated people. While Petey Greene has a presence at a number of colleges, Princeton is home to its largest and original chapter; its volunteers tutor in the Albert C. Wagner and Garden State Youth Correctional Facilities, and they focus on GED-level subjects. Ultimately, Petey Greene works to support academic achievement in prison classrooms in order to reduce recidivism rates and build stronger communities.
