I'm honored to teach Communicating for Life classes at Deer Ridge Correctional Institution (DRCI) and have needs met for connection, learning, contribution, fun, and more during each class. Your donation makes these classes possible, so once in a while we highlight a few of the men’s appreciations to you, for the difference you make in their lives!
Non-violent communication helped me out a lot and I am very grateful to have this class available. Bryn is an awesome teacher and patient. I have 7 assault charges and this is the first class that [I] took that helped me out a lot. And people listen and stuff.
I am very pleased that I took this class, it's one of the best decisions I've made since coming to prison. I never knew what empathy meant, until I took this class. I have more compassion for myself now and for others. I will continue to use this form of communication in life, prison, home, or at a job. Thank you to everyone who contributes and dedicates their time to teaching this class and those who donate their money.
With deep gratitude from many more participants—and from me,
