There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

Thinking for a Change (T4C) -Is an integrated approach to changing offender behavior, developed by Barry Glick, Jack Bush, and Juliana Taymans in cooperation with the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) that uses a combination of approaches to increase an offender’s awareness of themselves and others. It integrates cognitive restructuring, social skills, and problem-solving. The program begins by teaching offenders an introspective process for examining their ways of thinking and their feelings, beliefs, and attitudes. The process is reinforced throughout the program. Social-skills training is provided as an alternative to antisocial behaviors. The program culminates by integrating the skills offenders have learned into steps for problem-solving. Problem-solving becomes the central approach offenders learn that enables them to work through difficult situations without engaging in criminal behavior.

Sex Offender Education Program (SOEP) -The goal of the SOEP is to enable offenders to admit their offense of record and accept some level of responsibility for their actions by the time they are released. This program is primarily based on the Ross and Loss psycho-educational curriculum for sex offenders. Material has been integrated from the training provided by the foremost researchers and practitioners in the field. The approach is one of a didactic presentation in a group setting. It utilizes lectures, handouts, classroom notes and homework assignments. Objectives include increasing awareness about sexual assault, recognizing the impact of sexual assault on the victim; common motivations for sexual assault; identification and use of cognitive distortion of the offending cycle, and relapse prevention.
