Mission

Level creates 100% free educational content for people in prison. Level's guides focus on high school equivalency, career training and personal enrichment, such as art and writing. Level’s guides are printed on low cost standard printers and are sent through the mail directly to incarcerated individuals, including those in maximum security and solitary confinement. With more than 2 million people incarcerated in the United States, Level’s approach brings a scalable, openly distributed, low barrier, data driven solution to a population with no access to the internet or traditional educational technology.

Free Prisoner Education

Level creates, prints and distributes free educational and job training content for people in prison. The population we serve is 40% Black, 19% Latino and 1% Native. 100% are below the federal poverty level.

Level creates simple, accessible, black-and-white educational guides on topics including high school equivalency, job training and personal enrichment, such as art and writing. Level’s guides are printed on low cost standard printers and are sent through the mail directly to incarcerated individuals. Each guide contains a response form that people in prison can use to communicate back with Level to record their learning progress and request additional learning resources. With more than 2 million people incarcerated in the United States, Level’s approach brings a scalable, openly distributed, low barrier, data driven solution to a population with no access to the internet or traditional educational technology.

Level’s approach is different from existing alternatives because it does not rely on state funded in-person education classes. Level’s learning guides are sent directly to incarcerated individuals, even those in solitary confinement or maximum security.
