The 7 Habits® on the Inside

Creating a culture of safety in prisons and jails.

Over 10 million people are in prison worldwide, and 70 percent will reoffend after they are released.

What can we do for these individuals while incarcerated the first time to prepare for a law-abiding life? Just locking people up does not teach them how to make correct decisions, nor does it repair character flaws that led to their incarceration in the first place.

FranklinCovey’s 10-12 week training course for offenders has been proven to be life-changing.

Studies show that recidivism drops to as low as 8% and administrative violations drop by over 76% for graduates of The 7 Habits on the Inside. The bottom line is prisons and jails are safer.

Once offenders believe that they can choose their path in life, they begin to make changes, before they are released, that lead to a successful parole and reintegration into society.
