The Endeavor Branch is pleased to highlight the tutor training program at CMC. The Franklin Pre-Release Center Literacy Teacher trains volunteer cadre and serves as the instructor for the three day tutor training.

Apprenticeship is also a unique Department of Rehabilitation and Correction program started in the early 1970’s under a cooperative arrangement with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.  Apprenticeship is the time honored practice of acquiring a trade or craft designed to provide approved training to inmates in DRC for future profitable employment and appreciable living standards, when they reenter their communities as entry-level skilled workers.
