In the Making: Prison Outreach Program

Thurs­day, January 26, 2023 1:00pm — 2:00pm

Virtual, live streamed from NBSS

The first of its kind for women in New Hamp­shire, The Prison Outreach Program (POP) teaches resi­dents at the New Hamp­shire Correc­tional Facil­ity for Women the skills of furniture making.

They dive into all aspects of wood­work­ing, from being an indi­vid­ual maker/​designer to working for large construction/​carpentry compa­nies, with the goal of giving partic­i­pants a full range of post-incar­cer­a­tion employment opportunities.

Join wood­work­ers and POP lead instruc­tors Leah Woods and Lynn Szyman­ski of the Amer­i­can Furni­ture Masters Insti­tute to learn the evolu­tion of POP and its impor­tance in the lives of incarcerated women.
