Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 3, 2006
Fifteen inmates chosen from the drug and alcohol rehab program in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Lower Buckeye Jail in Phoenix, Arizona were presented three continuing education units (CEUs) from the Arizona State University (ASU) in an awards ceremony on Friday, March 31 at 11:00 am at the jail. They are graduates of the LifePilot.org’s workshop, whereby they are now capable of writing their own LifeManual (LifeManual.com), navigated by one of North America’s most empowering entrepreneurs and business success stories, Peter H. Thomas.
“Getting through to these inmates with our values based approach to life, teaching them how to achieve success, no matter their past choices, based on aligning their daily lives with their core values, and thereby developing a LifeManual has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life” says Thomas. “We have taught this program to thousands of successful, and some of the wealthiest, business people across the globe and have made a positive impact on their lives; but if we have succeeded to keep even just one of these fifteen inmates from returning to jail, I will have gained ‘real’ significance in my life.”
“Reducing recidivism is the goal of every Sheriff”, says Sheriff Arpaio. “I applaud and encourage Thomas’ goal to take the LifePilot program across the country to reduce recidivism.”
“We believe it is a great opportunity to help the soon to be released inmates to get a good start on taking their lives in a positive direction”, says Leanne Atwater, Interim Dean of ASU who will be personally awarding the CEUs. “The participants were highly involved in the LifePilot program and very anxious to put their new learning into practice and developing their own LifeManual. ASU is thrilled to be able to issue these individuals three continuing education credits that may be useful to them as they re-enter the workforce.”
