RACHEL Gives At-Risk Youth Another Learning Option

If you are looking for a way to erase the barriers to technology in prison education that is portable, affordable, and secure, you may be interested in checking out World Possible’s Remote Area Community Hotspot for Education (RACHEL) server.

World Possible created RACHEL for bringing educational web content to offline communities in Central America and Africa. The developers of RACHEL soon realized that their low cost technology solutions could be used in special circumstances in the U.S. – like prisons, juvenile facilities, jails, remote schools, community centers and reservations.

World Possible believes that technology in prison education, when used wisely, can lead to better outcomes for students and communities.

The Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) is the first to deploy the RACHEL server to give at-risk youth more learning options. In a video available at [racheloffline.org], OYA Director Frank Martin explains how RACHEL works. Visit www.worldpossible.org for more information on RACHEL.
