Success Stories is an alternative to prisons that builds safer communities by delivering feminist programming to people who have caused harm.

Our main offering is a 12-week workshop series based in feminist theory that radically reshapes how people who have caused harm see themselves, their goals, and their relationships to the people closest to them.

We work primarily with cismen between the ages of 18-35, who have the highest rates of recidivism, but Success Stories Program also works with ciswomen and nonbinary people of all ages who have been harmed or caused harm because of patriarchy. All workshops are led and facilitated by currently or formerly incarcerated people or graduates of the program. 

The program utilizes a “Relate-Investigate-Recreate” model where peer facilitators don’t try to teach participants in classroom, lecture style, rather they seek to relate with them by describing how they personally dealt with or deal with similar thoughts and behaviors. 

After program graduation, participants stay connected as a part of our Alumni Network, which offers success pods, tangible resource sharing, programming and accountability to continue on their individual and collective transformative journeys. Many also go on to become facilitators within our various sites, and are presented with the option of investing more deeply in our work through the Alumni Network.
