Program Helps Kane County Juvenile Inmates Earn College Credits

This news article in the Chicago Tribune highlights a program in Kane County Juvenile Justice Center School that provides the opportunity for incarcerated youth to advance their studies, higher education aspiration, and career interested while in the facility. Author, Rafael Guerrero, writes that “Since the first dual credit sessions held last summer at the St. Charles juvenile facility, the program has provided more than two dozen juvenile inmates the option to take three courses that count in both earning a high school or GED diploma and earn college credit.”
