Jail programs include:


OAR believes that two types of programs are essential to properly prepare offenders for release.  Skills-based classes such as OAR’s Employability and Financial Planning classes build the skills needed for success.  Other classes such as Impact of Crime and Responsible Fatherhood challenge the beliefs and attitudes that often lead to criminal behavior.  Offering classes that build skills and challenge criminogenic beliefs is the most effective way to prepare individuals to be successful upon release from incarceration.  

Many of our programs are run by volunteer instructors. To find out more information about volunteering, please click below.
