Department Home

Break It To Make It (BITMI) is a unique program that assists incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals successfully reintegrate into their communities and achieve long-term self-sufficiency through the arts, higher education, and rehabilitative services. This program provides a variety of support and services using a collaborative model composed of three organizations: Los Angeles City College, The Strindberg Laboratory, and The Los Angeles Mission.

With guidance and support focused on education, rehabilitation, and re-entry, BITMI participants will break free from the negative stigmas associated with incarceration to empower and make themselves successful in their academic careers and as productive citizens of their communities.
