"I love Criminon because it works! There are those who don't know any other way of life than that of crime. For them, that is the only solution to the problems and difficulties they face - all with illiteracy, drug abuse and a totally lost sense of self-respect as the main underlying factors to their incorrect life solutions. Until now...

"Criminon offers an extremely workable means to rehabilitate those men and women. Through the Criminon curriculum, men and women who have submerged themselves into that life of crime are given the opportunity to gain back their self-respect, realizing they CAN lead a life with pride and no crime. They are able to learn to read, learn basic life skills they may never have had in the first place, free themsleves of drug addiction and begin reaching out to others of their same condition and start helping their fellows, rather than stealing or harming them. Man is basically good. Some have never had a value system or life tools/skills to exercise this basic goodness. Now they do.

"As a supervisor who sees changes with each letter and lesson I receive, I know that Criminon IS the answer."

- Jenna Elfman, Actress, Criminon Activist and Correspondence Supervisor

The Way to Happiness Course

"Sitting up here in Pelican Bay gives a convict a lot of time to think of the past and future. Over all the years that I spent breaking laws and living a fast life, I didn't care about nobody or nothing. I always lived for myself and my homies. To me it's always been a game.

"When I first came across this Criminon course I thought of it only as something to do to kill some time. But as quiet as its kept the more I did of this course the more I learned what I have been missing. I have learned that being a gangster and kicking it with the homies didn't make me happy. I started to learn how much out of touch with the real world I was. I've learned that for me to be truly happy with my life I need to know what boundaries to cross and which ones not to. I've learned to respect others and to respect myself. I now understand that if I want a life in the free world then I need to treat others the way I wish to be treated. It's either that or sit u in this cell for the rest of my life and be miserable."

The Way to Happiness Course

"I have always blamed others for my problems, but there comes a time in your life where you have to take a look inside yourself and figure out "who you really are?" What is your purpose? How can I change my life? Who holds the answers to your questions?

"A friend shared with me a course he was taking and what it was doing for him. It caught my attention so I started to take the course. After the first few lessons, I realized that there are people who care about my happiness and my well being. My course instructor, Beth M. has been instrumental in continuing to lift up my spirits as I faced my daily struggles. It has kept my focused on the road towards my happiness.

"I have learned through this course that my success is - "Simply Understanding Changes Concerning Environment, Society and Self." The solution in making a change within your life is knowing what your success is. You have to do what is best for you. Stop trying to live or please others and start taking care of yourself. Get your life in order first, and then you will be ready to reach out and help others. Only you can make the first step towards change.

"Make a difference in your life. I'm making a difference in mine."

The Way to Happiness Course

"The Way to Happiness" course has allowed me to take a look into myself. This course has also helped me to identify with the dysfunctional thinking I have and showed me ways to change my thinking process."
