Short Description: 
MacLaren Youth Radio Journalism

MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility is the largest facility in Oregon for incarcerating youth. Most of these youth face stays ranging from 3 to 7years or longer. During their time on the facility these young men have access to a high school education, college courses and job skills training.

Through an organization called Hope Partnership they are offered additional workshops and classes that expose the youth to creative outlets, literacy and cultural awareness. Host Carlos Chavez is also Executive Director at Morpheus Youth Project, a fiscally sponsored non profit that has collaborated with Hope Partnership to facilitate a Radio Journalism Class (as well as other workshops). This edition of Prison Pipeline will focus on the 2011 highlights from this Radio class.
