Support The Chillon Project
Bringing Higher Education to PRISON Facilities














WHAT IS IT?
The Chillon Project is an undertaking of Life University’s Center for Compassion, Integrity and Secular Ethics (CCISE) together with the Georgia State Department of Corrections (GDC) to introduce a full Associate’s degree program in Georgia’s correctional facilities. 

Through this initiative, LIFE will be offering a new, interdisciplinary degree in Positive Human Development and Social Change. This new degree, which will be offered through the Chillon Project and on LIFE’s main campus, emphasizes the cultivation of inner skills such as emotion regulation and integrity, social skills such as compassion, and critical social analysis, which enables students to think critically and creatively about the problems that face society.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The cost to implement the program during its first three years is more than $800,000. All but $300,000 of the costs are covered by Life University and the State of Georgia.Of that $300,000, $160,000 has been raised to date, leaving $140,000 remaining to be funded by contributions. By supporting the incarcerated individuals and the correctional officers and their families with the gift of education, you are giving them the power to alter their lives to achieve their highest potential. 

Financial contributions will be used to cover the direct costs of teaching each student. The initial year of teaching (July 2016 - June 2017) has a per student cost of an associate degree education of $5,500. All contribution amounts are welcome.
