Building Better Lives
We believe that every incarcerated individual deserves access to high-quality educational, vocational, and rehabilitative programming. The Edovo platform provides learners with an opportunity to access programming that can help them build those skills, improve their outlook, and prepare for a successful reentry into society.
We understand that education is a powerful tool for transformation, and we have seen firsthand the positive impact that our programming can have on incarcerated learners. By providing a variety of programming options and personalized learning pathways, we empower incarcerated individuals to take ownership of their education and build a better future for themselves.

Incarcerated Learner @ Madera County, CA
"I’m not going to be that man I once was. I’m going to be content with my life, content with making my family happy. That’s where my focus is…to be there as a husband, a father, a grandfather. Edovo showed me that I do have accountability to my family, to the ones I love, and that’s a big step for me…because I've never been there."
Continue Edovo post-release
Over 600,000 people are released from state and federal prison every year and an untold number of people are released from jail every day.
