Work With Us


The Freedom to Choose Project transforms the lives of individuals impacted by incarceration through compassionate experiential education that has been proven to reduce prison violence and recidivism.

We are deeply committed to our vision that every person who wants to learn to become a responsible, productive member of society has the opportunity and support to do so.

It is our experience that people can change, even after spending years in prison or years in addiction. The capacity for the redemption of the human spirit is extraordinary and we have witnessed seeming miracles as people become peaceful, productive and responsible members of our society.


The Freedom to Choose Project is a recognized leader in prison rehabilitation education. Over the past 15 years a cadre of highly-dedicated volunteers have invested in creating a revolutionary prisoner rehabilitation/education program. FTC is growing and looking for hard-working, service-oriented, talented team members to build a solid, sustainable foundation for our organization to expand. We have received requests from all over the country for expanded programming and we want to say “Yes!”


Team members will have the opportunity to learn-and-grow as they share their gifts and talents in an organization that is truly making a difference in the world. Bring your excellence in communication, organization and emotional intelligence to our team!

“I’ve worked for 11 years in administration for one of the nation’s largest corrections systems and have spent time in more than 50 prisons, jails and detention centers. I wouldn’t have believed the strength and power of the Freedom to Choose experience if I hadn’t myself been in its midst.

The mission of Freedom to Choose has, at its core, the message that true freedom comes from erasing false beliefs of being bad and worthless and replacing them with understanding of the value of human existence and purpose of each soul. This project is about Restoration of the Heart.” Louise Grant
