Coding is one of the modern world’s most sought after skills.

Taking our inspiration from The Last Mile – an established prison coding programme that started in San Quentin but now runs in several prisons in California – we aim to teach people a life-changing skill and get them back into the job market.

The reason for this is simple. People who leave prison and find work are highly unlikely to reoffend. At the same time employment is one of the great barriers for people with criminal records, and many companies will not hire them.
