LIFE CHANGING CURRICULUM

We are pleased to offer these inmate correspondence courses to your friends or family members who are incarcerated. Inmates are much more inclined to evaluate their lives and look for ways to improve compared to when they are not in jail or prison. In other words, this is a great time for them to be working on the issues that are limiting your inmate’s happiness.

ACCI’s inmate life skills workbooks are easy to read and are written in story format. The workbooks are written about real people with real problems, and how they overcame their obstacles. The workbooks give time-tested skills which have been proven to help people become happier and more productive.

    Driver Responsibility

    The Driver Responsibility course focuses on the “x-factor” of driving; which is the values and attitudes of drivers.

Research shows that most all drivers have the basic skills to drive correctly, but many lack the cognitive skills of patience and empathy.
