- The Career Technical Horticulture Program is an educational program at GCI designed to offer inmates the opportunity to develop marketable skills in the horticulture field. The one-year program, composed of both classroom and hands on training, prepares students to test for the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association Certification. Upon successful completion of all three exams in this test, inmates are granted the Interim Ohio Nursery Technician Master Status. There is a five week program offered to short term offenders providing an overview of the program. Plants and vegetables are grown and sold to staff providing a self-sustaining program. In addition to the staff sales, several hundred pounds of produce are donated to the local food bank each year.
- Faith Based Family Reintegration Program is a program for offenders, their family members, sponsors and mentors. The program is facilitated by GCI staff, Adult Parole Authority staff, and local clergy volunteers. The program consists of 4 phases of tabletop exercises designed to involve the offender and his family in the development of a family reintegration plan (family contract). The program participants will meet twice each month for 12 months. The finished product will be a family plan that the offender and family members can use as a guide to help them work through reentry issues. They will be encouraged to share their plan with the minister in the church they will be attending upon release from prison.
