T&T serves in two ongoing programs within correctional facilities in the midlands. We have had to temporarily suspend these programs due to restrictions on visitors during COVID-19. We hope and pray we can resume Jumpstart and the T&T Course as soon as possible!



A Christian non-profit organization based in Spartanburg, focused on helping returning citizens during their transition out of incarceration.

  • Includes a 40-week discipleship course based on Rick Warren’s book, “The Purpose Driven Life,” and is currently offered in 16 different institutions across SC.

  • Jumpstart sessions are led by inmates who are distinguished Jumpstart graduates themselves.

  • Jumpstart volunteers are not required to lead anything; they are participants in small-group discussions.

  • T&T partners with the Jumpstart program offered at Kirkland Correctional Institution as part of CIU’s Prison Initiative. 

  • T&T Volunteers at Kirkland work with inmates who are CIU students going through the Jumpstart program. 

  • Jumpstart programs are also available at several other facilities (Men’s and Women’s) in the Columbia area.


The T&T Course

The T&T team has developed a unique curriculum to fit the need for a medium-length (12-week) pre-release course that also serves as the initial phase of a mentorship program. Topics covered in this course include identity, community, finances & budgeting, habits & addictions, relationships, job preparation, and much more. The course is currently being taught at Broad River (a level 3 facility) and Manning (a level 1 facility).

(Please see our volunteer page for more info on serving in either of these programs)
