Ambassador Academy

The Ambassador Academy is a program designed to create a career pathway for individuals (men and women) who are formerly incarcerated. However, anyone who has a genuine desire to change their lifestyle and needs the necessary tools to get ahead can enroll in this program. Our goal is that this program will lead to economic empowerment for each member who decides to complete this program. The program is a 3-6 month requirement, depending on individualized assessment.

Who are the Alumni?

Homeless InitiativeIn 2007, the group, headed by Yusef-Andre Wiley, approached Avenal State Prison administrators with a proposal to establish the group as a legitimate program recognized by prison officials. We called our program Timeless – A Lifer Support Group. As interest in rehabilitation grew, Timeless opened its workshops to the entire prison population and, eventually, parolees. Through the curriculum we created and the work the participants put in, we discovered if a person is willing and able to think critically about his/her life and the world around, he/she will realize “it is never too late to change.”

So, who are the alumni? These are the very men who form the moral conscience and culture of Timelist. They represent leadership building blocks and blueprints for other Timelist members to follow and replicate in their community. All alumni leaders are former lifers who hold key leadership positions in the Timelist Group operations. Today, the alumni continue to train and develop new leadership within the program that has completed all necessary courses during and after incarceration.
