The Tennessee Higher Education Initiative is a nonprofit based at Center 615 that brings college programs inside Tennessee prisons across the state. Their organization coordinates the programs and runs accredited college campuses at each of the prison sites, leading to Associate’s degrees in Business Administration and Political Science. They are in the middle of their “back-to-school” supplies drive. If you are interested in donating, check out the needed items on their Amazon wishlist!
Molly Lasagna, Executive Director, enjoys the accessibility of Center 615 and the opportunities for people to get together and network. Lasagna says, “If you are looking for a vibrant, dynamic, intergenerational coworking space that is in the heart of the action of Nashville, then Center 615 is the place for you.”
