The Team

Edovo offers courses in subjects ranging from basic literacy and GED to career exploration and cognitive behavioral therapy. We’re also building tools to keep people in touch with jobs, social services, friends, and family. Our team is committed to bridging access to meaningful education behind bars and improving outcomes for justice-involved people everywhere.

Women, people of color, and people from underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply. And yes, we believe in second chances.
