Most inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. NFCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas.
College courses (not provided through state funding) are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.
NFCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.
NFCC inmates can get job training through a CareerTech Skills Center, which trains them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find jobs after release.
Courses include Building Maintenance Technology, Career Readiness, Construction Technology and Transportation Distribution & Logistics for Warehouse.
