Remote Learning

Workshops For "Deep Dive"

Wind provides customized skills-based workshops for women in jail or prison who cannot attend in-person sessions through our correspondence workshops. With the help of a committed Women’s Program Specialist from the Cook County Department of Corrections (CCDOC) and a large group of volunteer feedback coaches, we run remote modules for women at Cook County Jail in Chicago.  This format is a wholly different kind of interaction. Ongoing communication with an individual feedback coach allows each woman more time for introspection and growth. This connection is so important when women are cut off from their friends and family.
