State and Regional Coordinators

State and regional coordinators support the Inside-Out program in the following ways:

Coordinators volunteer to serve for two-year terms and are subject to annual review by The Inside-Out Center.

Please note that coordinators are expected to serve the interests of all Inside-Out instructors in their state or region, and not simply their own institutions.

If you have questions or concerns about state / regional coordination, or would like to volunteer, please email Lori Pompa at

Currently, Inside-Out has coordinators in the following geographic areas:

“It would be impossible in this space here to fully describe what I have gained from these last few days together and how much I can feel a huge transformation on the horizon for me, both inside the classroom and out. I feel like an egg that is almost ready to hatch…almost… More specifically, I will take away a newfound faith that I can facilitate a learning environment that is very different from my previous experience, but still consistent with my most deeply held beliefs. I also take away particular concrete skills and resources that are too many to mention here. I have met new colleagues with whom I intend to collaborate further and with whom I hope to become friends. And, perhaps most importantly, I will take away a renewed faith in the student in all of us – and in my particular students.”

Inside-Out training in Mexico

“Through my participation in this training, I have gained a greater sense of hope, love, and a brighter future, if not for myself, then for those I love. Being in this training is like assurance that the struggles will continue and we (people in prison) have not and will not be forgotten. I also feel like I’ve gained more family, for Inside-Out is my family, and those who are training are now also my family.”
