Projects & Programs
The correctional system strives to both protect public safety and promote the rehabilitation of those who have threatened it. The proper balance between these two imperatives is a matter of constant debate and re-evaluation. But one point on which everyone agrees is that American prisons by and large do not work.
While we believe expanding programming opportunities for people incarcerated is critical, ARrow focuses at ways to improve the correctional environment, and thus reentry, by understanding the attitudes of correctional officers and institution staff and providing greater support for human dignity.

How Can We Help
Coordinating Cross-Site Exchanges.
Exchange of corrections officers and officials from the U.S. and different countries, who would make visits together to facilities in each other’s nations.
Investigate how correctional officers understand the profession of corrections—and especially the rehabilitative function of prisons—and officers’ understanding of their role in that function.
System Actor Faciliation.
Cross-cultural exchange to create space for new thinking and insights relating to security, programming, rehabilitation, and the inculcation of notions of human dignity.
Correction Staff Development.
Conduct structured, elicited interviews to develop lessons learned and follow-up on potential changes to approaches, attitudes, or procedures that can be implemented back in the home country.
Supporting + Developing Veterans in Criminal Legal Professions.
Supporting and setting up veterans in law enforcement/corrections for success.
