Project TURN creates a learning environment in which incarcerated men and women and students from outside prison can learn alongside one another as classmates. We believe that lives are renewed by the transformation of our minds. Our classes balance academic training and personal spiritual development to offer a unique experience in which diverse students stretch their boundaries and enlarge their imaginations.
Project TURN is a partnership between School for Conversion, state and federal prisons in North Carolina, Duke Divinity School, and community organizations.
"Through Project TURN, divinity school students join inmates in classes held in prison. Together they are seeking the pieces of theological reflection that become missing in a society willing to silence huge swaths of its population through incarceration." --Sarah Jobe, Project TURN Founder
