The Program – Alabama

The JUMPSTART Alabama Experience

In cooperation with our donors, churches and the community, JUMPSTART disciples current and former prisoners and assists with re-entry to society. We accomplish our mission through Community Partnerships to address the spiritual, educational, employment, healthcare, housing, and family relationship needs.

Inside Program

JUMPSTART Inside Program


The Inside Program introduces the person of Jesus Christ to participants and helps them discover a greater purpose for their lives.

The distinguishing attributes of our program are:

  • A year-long intensive discipleship process

  • Unique, peer-to-peer assessments that ensure accountability and drive growth

  • Class curriculum focused on transforming lives through: worship, fellowship, discipleship, mentoring, serving others, living with purpose, and reentry education.

  • A stress on daily living out our core values of accountability, responsibility, and submission to authority

  • 100 participants enter the program annually, with a 44% average successful completion rate. Those who drop out and don’t complete the program are welcome to take it again the following year. But of those who do finish, they have a 95% success rate on staying out of prison.

“The opportunity that JUMPSTART AL has given me, has been instrumental in my walk with Christ, and has given me the basic knowledge of God’s Word, in which has allowed me to set aside things of this world, and to focus on glorifying Him in all that I do.”

Shannon, Inside Program Participant
