The Warden Exchange™ (WE) is a Prison Fellowship program empowering corrections professionals to create a legacy of safer prisons and safer communities. The Warden Exchange convenes thought leaders who exchange innovative ideas and best practices for the moral rehabilitation of inmates. Together, we can create a prison culture conducive to restorative change and successful reentry.
Amazing! All supervisors should go through this training.
– Warden, WE Class of 2016
Using a variety of tools—business best-practices, cutting-edge technology, and revolutionary training approaches—wardens, deputy wardens, and associate wardens are equipped with knowledge and resources from throughout the field of corrections as they seek to become transformational leaders.
Today’s inmates are tomorrow’s neighbors.
– Warden, WE Class of 2016
Wardens who go through the Warden Exchange are ready to apply innovative approaches in order to impact and transform their facilities for more effective rehabilitation. As a result, prisoners can have greater access to programming and volunteers that equip, prepare, and support them to re-enter society and enrich their communities.
"I feel energized to raise the facility to a higher level. I will use what I have learned to create an environment where staff want to be at work and to improve moral rehabilitation. I really like the network that was established within these 7 months. I feel as though I can reach out to anyone in WE for help and vice versa."
"The team of professionals that supported this program is impressive. An excellent program that should be continued. Enjoyed the experience to interact with other senior professionals in corrections."
