Through a partnership with the National Alliance of Faith and Justice, FRCC is the affiliate in St. Louis-Gateway Region coordinating the Pen or Pencil Group Mentoring Program: Writing A New History.
Pen or Pencil (POP) is an acronym for the school to prison pipeline epidemic.
- PEN stands for the penitentiary system, and PENCIL represents education.
- The focus of this initiative is to increase academic achievement, decrease delinquency, and reduce anti-social behaviors in youth who are at greatest risk of disconnection.
- Read the national POP fact sheet.
