Jesuit Engagement with Prison Education

In summer 2021, Henry James (C’22) conducted research at Thrive for Life’s Ignacio House in the Bronx, through the Education and Social Justice Project, a joint project of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. Thrive for Life is a Jesuit organization that conducts religious retreats in prisons throughout New York state and administers Ignacio House, a transitional home for those who are re-integrating into society and continuing their educational journeys. During his time there, he interviewed the residents about their experiences in educational programs both in and beyond prison, learning about the transformative power of college in prison.
