GOGI creates a positive culture shift, which finds its roots in an independent study curricula that can be completed in English or Spanish. GOGI programming helps prisoners live a successful life, both in prison and after, upon their return to broader society. Our materials include several books and exercises that are meant to help them deal with their problems and prepare them to live as part of a community.
The U.S. prison system is not sustainable and more than 90% of all prisoners will be released back into our communities, most with nearly impossible odds of success.
Getting Out by Going In (GOGI) is a positive cultural movement created by prisoners for other prisoners that serves as an alternative to the violence and crime rampant in U.S. prisons. Offered in cost-effective programming, in-cell self-study courses, or correspondence courses, GOGI programming further supports the positive decision-making of the U.S. prison population and better prepares them for success upon their release.

GOGI was founded in 2002 when (then psychology student) Dr. "Coach" Taylor began volunteering with a small group of Federal Prisoners at FCI Terminal Island in San Pedro, California, USA. The prisoners were asked what it would take for them to be "successful" when they were sent home.
