Corrections Overview

Since 1987, MTC has made a social impact by giving thousands of offenders an opportunity to change their lives. MTC's philosophy in Corrections is rehabilitation through education — that's why we provide offenders with numerous educational, vocational, substance abuse, cognitive behavioral, faith-based, and life-skills programs from GED and adult basic education to anger management and moral reconation therapy. Research has shown that offenders who participate in proven programming are less likely to re-offend after they're released. Over the last year, MTC awarded 32,485 certificates including:

  • 18,287 in academic/life skills courses
  • 9,363 in substance-abuse programs
  • 1,805 GEDs & INEAS (Mexican equivalent of GED)
  • 3,030 in vocational training programs

Additionally, offenders and staff contributed more than 550,000 hours of community service, participated in more than ten million hours of programming, and helped raise more than $150,000 to support local charities.

MTC safely secures nearly 26,000 offenders in eight states at 25 facilities. To ensure we operate the highest quality correctional facilities, MTC pursues nationally-recognized accreditations from the American Correctional Association, the Correctional Education Association, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care, and the National Commission of Correctional Health Care. In 2009, the MTC corporate office obtained American Correctional Association accreditation, becoming the first and only private operator to do so.
