Inside Circle is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the inner personal growth of men in prison. The goal of Inside Circle is to provide a space for prisoners to work and explore the issues in their lives that have prevented them from living up to their full potential as human beings. During weekly support groups and periodic intensive trainings, the inmates and volunteer staff create a safe environment where the inmates can tell the hard truths about their lives and discover the true motivation behind their destructive behavior, and the gifts and talents that they bring to the world. It is through these self-help discussion groups that participants are able to achieve the inner development necessary to become healthy contributing members of our society.
