Mission Statement

To empower incarcerated men, women, and children with tools to make positive decisions so they may successfully return to society.

Description

Getting Out by Going In (GOGI) is a positive cultural movement.

The current prison system is overwhelmed and top-down methods haven't worked. GOGI is created BY prisoners, FOR prisoners, and with our bottom-up approach we're spreading virally and organically all over the world.

Prisoners identified tools they could use to make positive decisions and now they live The GOGI Way.

Notable Facts:

-GOGI works for everyone regardless of age, race, sex, gender, preference, or religious offiliation.

-The GOGI Tools for Positive Decision-Making are backed by strong psychological methods and practices, over a decade of hands-on research has gone into creating these tools.

-GOGI is non-religous, you don't have to believe in a higher power to practice GOGI. We are working on courses such as GOGI for Christians, GOGI for Muslims, etc...because there is a high demand.

-GOGI was selected by the Winston Churchill Foundation as the most effective prison program in the United States, it has since been requested and brought to Northern Ireland.

-GOGI is a consultant for the United Nations on the topic of prison reform.

GOGI is run on a model of 100% volunteerism, we are always in need of talented people such as yourself who go out of their way to be helpers. If you are interested in GOGI, and think you may have a skill set that could help, please don't hesitate to email our volunteer coordinator: assist@gettingoutbygoingin.org

Would you recommend Getting Out by Going In (GOGI)?

by Volunteer C. (Administrator for this Organization) (July 1, 2016)
I've been volunteering with GOGI for over eight months, there is really no experience like it! At first I was standoffish because I hadn't had any experience working with prisoners, but I very quickly realized this is a great way to make the world a more powerful, productive, and positive place. I get to use my passion to grow my skill sets (in this case video production and psychology), so I would highly recommend GOGI to anyone interested in being part of an awesome cultural movement.
