Why we do what we do

Dave Dahl, a lead investor in Nucleos and co-founder of Dave's Killer Bread shares his story with us. Dave was formerly incarcerated, and accredits the educational opportunity he had in prison with much of his success. Stories like his are what drive us. We want to give everyone a chance to rebuild their life, starting with education.

Promoting a more just society

Education programs behind bars brings incarcerated individuals a chance to build themselves a better life and gives them a positive outlook for the future.

When we give people meaningful opportunities, we support a society in which formerly incarcerated people are less likely to return to prison, and in which social inequalities are reduced.
