About Us

Founding

In 2008, a group of men incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison were unsatisfied that people were leaving prison unprepared. Knowing this would make it difficult for them and others to live healthy, engaged, crime-free lives outside of prison, they decided to start a new program at San Quentin to give prisoners the tools they would need to truly reintegrate back into society and practice social justice.

With a handful of professionals, community volunteers and a few prison staff dedicated to rehabilitation, they established the Alliance for CHANGE to provide programming to prepare prisoners to succeed after being released.
