A new direction after prison

Creating an opportunity for success after prison where one doesn’t currently exist

A program of cognitive behavioral classes, supportive services, transitional work, and job placement

The Problem

The U.S. prison system is broken


Amount the U.S. spends on prisons each year


Increase in the prison population since the 1970’s


Percent of people re-arrested within three years of release

Working with men at the highest risk of rearrest, Turn90 offers an evidence-informed model of prison reentry that is reducing national recidivism rates by two-thirds.

We combine cognitive-behavioral classes, supportive services, and on-site transitional work in the Turn90 Print Shop to create an opportunity for success after prison where one doesn’t currently exist. Every graduate is placed in a job with competitive wages, benefits, and potential for advancement.

Pioneering a new approach

A new direction after prison

Research demonstrates that improving emotion regulation, new thinking, and problem-solving skills is the most effective way to help people succeed after prison.

Turn90’s cognitive behavioral program includes:

  • 150-hour proprietary cognitive behavioral curriculum
  • Daily classes with role plays using real-life scenarios
  • Facilitation and guidance from program graduates on the Turn90 staff

Turn90 hailed as a promising program with the potential to

change the whole criminal justice system.

Slide 2

Before I came to Turn90 I’d almost lost hope. Now I’m learning things I wish someone taught me when I was younger – like how to think in the right way and brainstorm before making a decision.

Turn90 is the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time.

Turn90 selected as one of twenty organizations nationally to receive a grant from Boeing

in support of its work on racial equity and social justice.

Slide 4

One person who leaves prison and doesn’t go back is a win.

Hundreds of thousands of people who never return is a game-changer in the effort to reform our criminal justice system.
