What is PEP?

Video - Learn About PEP

The Prison Entrepreneurship Program (PEP) is prison outreach from a business perspective. Baylor students volunteer as Business Plan Advisors to teach inmates the skills needed to prepare a business plan.

As advisors, Baylor students support and accompany an inmate through his journey in this life-transforming program. The Business Plan Advisor Program is a truly win-win opportunity for both the volunteers and participants.

Baylor Student Testimonies

"PEP was an opportunity unlike any other that I had been approached with. I saw that these in need truly needed my assistance and had no other form of outside contact. After finishing this program, I've learned that people can change for the better when given the opportunity. Even though some of these people have been incarcerated for a long time, they will still work hard for a better future. Seeing that after everything they have gone through, they are still persistent and fighting for another opportunity and that motivated me even more to want to be a part of something great." - Farzeen Dhalla, MSIS

"I believe everyone is responsible to use their skills to benefit others in life and PEP gave me the chance to do just that with my newly acquired MBA skills." - Rachel McCalister, MBA
