Indiana adopting program to align inmates with gainful employment upon release
On Tuesday, Governor Eric Holcomb will detail the state’s plan to pilot a program aimed at teaching prison inmates in coding ahead of their release dates. Indiana will become the first state outside of California to adopt the program, known as The Last Mile, which aims to align inmates with gainful employment upon release. Indiana will first begin training women how to code at the Indiana Women’s Prison as part of the pilot. Holcomb will have more details Tuesday alongside the program’s founder, Chris Redlitz, and co-founder and program graduate Kenyatta Leal.
