Project Description

UnlockEd is an all-in-one education access and management platform for correctional environments. Education has been proven to be the most effective catalyst in creating opportunity and reducing recidivism for incarcerated individuals. Yet the vast majority of incarcerated individuals don’t have access to consistent, high quality education. Developed and tested by a team of currently incarcerated individuals, UnlockEd is available without internet access, which will increase access to education and improve outcomes for incarcerated students.
