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.

Ohio State Penitentiary (OSP) is an administrative maximum security prison that houses mostly maximum security and administrative maximum security adult males located in Youngstown OH with a capacity of 504 inmates. Although this prison is the highest security, it is renowned for the humane treatment of offenders, and the rehabilitative programs offered. Inmates can participate in adult basic education and GED programs.

Inmates at OSP have several programs aimed at self-development. The Accepting Responsibility program is based around inmates realizing the root cause of destructive behavior lies within. The "Fear: The Anger Trigger" program relays the cause of an inmate's anger and how it affects everyone around them including family and the M.A.N. U.P. Program which stands for Men Acknowledging Nature's Ultimate Purpose, helps to empower inmates by showing them the importance of their role of being a leader, provider, and protector. The program establishes a universal understanding of the responsibilities of manhood. Ultimately the Mission of the M.A.N.U.P. program is to guide young men through the process of identifying their true nature; ultimately making our world a better place as a result.
