Sedgwick County jail starts mentoring program

KSAL StaffApril 6, 2014

Sedgwick County has started a mentoring program aimed at helping the jail inmates transition back into the community.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office says the new program is designed to help inmates change their thinking and guide their actions in a positive way. Ten inmates recently graduated from the program.

The Wichita Eagle reports the free program uses community volunteers, such as educators and ministers, to guide the inmates with support, problem-solving and anger-management. Under the program the inmates meet regularly with their mentors and then continue to meet with mentors after their release from the jail.
