Georgia Department of Corrections – Monroe County Schools

In August 2010, the Georgia Department of Corrections began a 12 For Life partnership with the Monroe County Board of Education to provide five at-risk students an alternative to dropping out of school. Each student attends school for the first half of the day and works the other half in an entry level position. Select corrections employees serve as mentors to the students, providing them with support and guidance.
