POPS the club provides a space for high school students struggling with the Pain of the Prison Sytem. We offer a place to come together to share our stories and to hear the stories of others.
Too often shame and stigma silence both those with loved ones who are incarcerated and those whose lives have otherwise crossed paths with the justice system.
POPS the club vanquishes that shame and stigma and offers joy and wisdom, hope and friendship.
POPStheclub.com, Inc. is a California-based 501(c)(3). Our website, social media and publications are the hubs linking clubs across the country.
Each club is led by a team of volunteers, a teacher and/or team of teacher/counselor sponsors supported by community-based volunteers. We train club leaders to employ our curriculum.
