Exchange for Change offers writing courses in prisons and runs letter exchanges between incarcerated students and writers studying on the outside. By preparing incarcerated people for their reentry into the outside community and preparing that community for their return, Exchange for Change provides vision and understanding on both sides of the fence.

What We Do

We provide opportunities for creative and intellectual engagement.

Exchange believes education is a human right. We believe in the value of every voice, and we give our students an opportunity to express themselves without the fear of being stigmatized. When everyone has the ability to listen and be heard, strong and safe communities are formed.

With a pen and paper, students can become agents of social change across different communities in ways they may otherwise have never encountered.
