About Read In, Read Out

Program Coordinator Gensis Farley

The Read-In, Read-Out Program is a collaborative project of the Department of Correction, the Delaware Center for Justice, and Read Aloud Delaware. Selected parents can record themselves reading age-appropriate books to their children. The resulting recordings are then sent, along with the books, to each child. In this manner, incarcerated parents are better able to preserve a bond with their children, improve their communication and parenting skills, and ease their transition back to their families and to the community. Read In, Read Out is currently at Howard R. Young Correctional Institution and Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution.

Eligibility: Department of Corrections programming; HRYCI and BWCI Residents only.
