Blogging Behind Bars
In this Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013 photo, an inmate looks over materials on a business model canvas during a session of The Last Mile at San Quentin State Prison in San Quentin, Calif. The Last Mile program trains selected prisoners for eventual employment in a paid internship program within the Silicon Valley technology sector. Through twice-weekly sessions over a six-month period, the program provides information and practical experiences to increase knowledge and awareness about the role of social media, build skills in relevant areas for employment in the high-tech sector and foster confidence and a sense of hope that they can succeed as free men.
