At Central New Mexico Correctional Facility inmates are working side by side to learn basic carpentry skills. This includes hours of classroom work and hands on experience. With this hands on experience they are learning everything from framing, sheet rock, and roofing.
Programs such as this one provide the inmates with a skill set that can be used to find jobs when they leave prison and 96% of them will get out.
