Free To Succeed

Free To Succeed helps San Quentin inmates read better.

Reading opens up a world of opportunity for a man. Equally important – it opens up opportunities for his family.

Helping a man read better is like tossing a pebble in a pond, except the ripples reading sends out – transform generations.

Free To Succeed volunteers are everyday people – professionals, business people, a painter, a real estate agent, a programmer, a carpenter, a designer, a sales assistant, college students, an operations analyst, an accountant, an event coordinator, an administrative assistant, and yes, teachers.

We’re an all-volunteer, non-profit working to change lives.
