Hello new students! The Petey Greene Program is thrilled to have you all at YLS. 

Petey Greene is a group of students committed to providing inmates at local state prisons with access to decent educational opportunities. Our primary mission is to tutor inmates and help them toward  high school equivalency certifications (GEDs). Although our focus is on the actual tutoring we do, we also strive to facilitate programming and service opportunities geared towards prison education issues more generally. 

Whether you're coming to law school to pursue a career in criminal justice or just looking for a unique way to help out in the community, we would love to have you join our cause!
