NEW CLASSROOM COMPUTERS AT NH STATE PRISON FOR WOMEN

(Goffstown, NH) The Education Department at the New Hampshire State Prison (NHSP/W) for Women, Goffstown, is the recipient of five new computers to assist offender career development classes. The computers come from the New Hampshire Bureau of Adult Education thanks to a grant funded from the Federal Workforce Investment Act.

Offenders will use the computers for G.E.D. preparation work, Career Development classes, and for other classes taught at the women's prison. These computers are equipped with Microsoft Office 2003® software. To qualify for the grant the NHSP/W Education Department must successfully meet core performance indicators stipulated by the Bureau of Adult Education.

To accomplish this the women's prison works cooperatively with the New Hampshire Human Resource Association of Greater Concord to deliver presentations about interviewing, resumes, harassment, employee benefits, and stress management as part of a 40-hour course. This four-year agreement has proven successful in providing offenders with helpful tools and resources that they can use when they are returned to the community.
