First of all, I am very grateful to each of you for the contributions you’re making to Prison Professors. As described on our Prison Professors Interns page, our team strives to accomplish the following goals:
- Teach people in prison to prepare for successful, law-abiding lives,
- Open income opportunities for people that have experienced the criminal justice system,
- Help non-criminogenic people avoid government investigations
- Help business people avoid decisions that can lead to charges for white-collar crime
- Prison Professors Interns Link: https://prisonprofessors.com/interns-at-prison-professors/
Our ecosystem requires us to:
- Step 1: Teach people how to develop stronger communication and critical-thinking skills.
- Step 2: Provide paid internships for people coming out of prison, tasking some with writing about the criminal justice experience.
- Step 3: Create teaching and training tools to help more people understand the system, the people it holds, and strategies to improve outcomes for people and institutions.
We need assistance with editing and writing the content that our formerly incarcerated team members produce. Since we communicate with a professional audience, we must communicate at a professional level. We’re grateful to university interns that can help us improve this content.
In addition to improving the writing style of our core messaging, we must also broadcast to the world. With that end in mind, we’ve created a new process that will provide an opportunity for each intern that has confidence in writing social media posts.
Please follow the process below to complete new editing projects:
- Audit case studies available in our Learning Management System.
- While reading, please look for typographical errors.
- Please record how many minutes it took to complete the case study.
- Please let us know if you earned a certificate
- Please adhere to best practices to write:
- Facebook Post Title
- Linked In Post
- An Email broadcast about the post
- Each intern will record progress on a personalized Google Sheet like the one available through this link:
- Send me an email if you want to begin working on this project.
- You will read case studies, similar to the ones you edited.
- You will complete the quiz and get a certificate.
- You will record your progress on a sheet that is similar to this Google Drive—I will send one to each person with instructions on which case studies to audit.
- You will follow a process to write:
- Facebook Post (See guidelines below)
- Linked Post (See guidelines below)
- Tweet (See guidelines below)
- Email broadcast (See guidelines below)
Upon receipt of your email indicating that you want to work on this project, I will follow up with the following process:
- Our Learning Management System system will automatically generate and send an email to each intern with a user name and instructions to set a new password to log in.
- The email will come from Learn.compliancemitigation.com (be sure to add our site URL to your safe email list).
- We will assign the case studies we want you to audit and write social media posts.
Please let me know if this project makes sense to you and if you would like to participate. You will record your hours on the spreadsheet we created for each intern, and we will send payment every Friday for the duration of this ongoing project.
Thanks for your interest, we appreciate your support.
