Redefining the way people think about the role of education in restoring communities.
Five Keys uses Social and Restorative Justice principles to provide traditionally underserved communities the opportunity to restart their education with a focus on the Five Keys:
Originally established by the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department (2003) as the first charter school for incarcerated adults in the nation, today Five Keys is a nationally recognized non-profit education management corporation that operates accredited charter schools, workforce development and reentry programs for transitional-aged youth (TAY) and adults at over 70 locations in the community and in 17 county jails across California.
Five Keys works to restore communities through education and programs that respond to student and community needs. This, in turn, creates safer communities. Five Keys provides a range of educational programs and services including high school diploma, jail-based job centers, career and technical education, digital literacy, ESL, cognitive behavioral therapy, recovery programs, violence prevention, case management, correctional education consulting and college and career counseling in seven California counties.
