The Last Mile, a non profit based in San Francisco, is the first prison program in the US to provide in-prison software engineering training. the goal is to prepare students for employment as front-end developers and web designers post-release. Students learn HTML, CSS, Javascript, Python and more. We believe that having a job is the key to successful reentry and breaking the cycle of incarceration. A projected shortage of nearly 1 million software engineering jobs by 2020 means that these jobs skills will be in demand. Through in-prison software engineering training and continued mentorship post-release, The Last Mile bridges the gap between incarceration and freedom. The Last Mile is a program of Turn 2 U, Inc. (EIN 46-2899930).
