Girl Scouts Beyond Bars 
reunites incarcerated mothers with their children, teaches valuable life skills, and encourages relationship-building through three key programs:

  • Project MEND (Mothers Encouraging and Nurturing Their Daughters) encourages positive relationships between mothers and children and promotes the importance of maintaining a family bond, despite the separation caused by incarceration. Project MEND provides drug and alcohol prevention, conflict resolution and other valuable life skills, including classes on self-esteem, healthy eating, exercise and stress/anger management for incarcerated mothers and their children.
  • Boys to MEND is a supplemental program that expands Project MEND to embrace the full family by providing specific programs for boys on a monthly basis.
  • Project Reconnect helps female offenders transition from prison into our community, reducing the likelihood of recidivism. Reconnect includes family-oriented programming, vocational training, drug counseling, housing/clothing assistance, mentoring, transportation, tutoring for children, cognitive behavior classes, a 12-step drug support group and job placement post-graduation. It is a collaboration between Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, George Kaiser Family Foundation, Workforce Oklahoma, Tulsa Technology Center, Tulsa Community College, Oklahoma Department of Corrections and Community Service Council.
