The LifeTech Institute located in Thomasville, Alabama, is an innovative non-credit parolee transition program operated in partnership with the Alabama Board of Pardons and Parole and Coastal Alabama Community College. The LifeTech Institute teaches life skills and technical skills to help parolees make the transition from prison to society. The program trains parolees for successful reentry into the world of work and helps reduce Alabama prison overcrowding. The transition program is demanding. Each parolee assigned to the center must meet obligations to participate in treatment, vocational and life skills training and also work at the center.
