Reading Between the Lines® uses discussion of literature to build critical thinking and communication skills with formerly and currently incarcerated women and men. This intellectual
exchange nurtures self-confidence and collaboration, offering participants a chance for a different future.

Each year, thousands of men and women are released from prison in Illinois.
Help them build the skills needed for a brighter future by supporting Reading Between the Lines®.

Without intervention,
nearly 50% of all offenders return to prison in three years.

Recognizing how to relate effectively with peers can build a new sense of self-respect and help break the cycle of recidivism. Reading Between the Lines® uses a simple but novel approach to reentry. We read a text. We unpack it. We ignite minds.
