The Power Source Training: A Program to Prepare Lifers and Long-term Prisoners to Facilitate a High Impact Social-Emotional (Re)habilitation Program for 18-24 Year-olds is a program offered by the Lionheart Foundation and supported by the CDCR (CA Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation).

This program trains and nurtures positive purpose in many long-term prisoners who are walking the walk of rehabilitation. When the young men and older prisoner-facilitators were asked, “Would you recommend the program to someone else?”ALL WERE AFFIRMATIVE.  Read more about the Power Source Program.

A small sampling of comments from prisoner-facilitators:

“I love this program!! It’s life changing. It’s one of the only programs that all the participants take seriously.”

“So many young people come up to me with smiles and thank me and tell me what the program means to them.”

“It gave me the opportunity to live the life I’ve always wanted. Today I treat everyone with respect.”

“The experience of being an inside facilitator made me want to change the direction of my life. I now want to become a mentor and facilitator when I get free. It has shown me that I can be more in my life.”

“It’s amazing how people can come into your life and change your whole outlook. Power Source provides the guidance to re-connect with your greater self so that you can live the sort of loving existance we are meant to live.”

“Being responsible is a blessing.”

“Words can’t explain how good it feels to be of service. I am no longer part of the problem. I am part of the solution.”
