Jason Bell, Criminal Justice Studies Lecturer, and the Director of Program Development for the CSU Consortium of Project Rebound campuses continues his commitment to helping formerly incarcerated people reintegrate back into society through Project Rebound, a program that offers opportunities for people who are hoping to complete their college education.

Founded in 1967 at San Francisco State University by Professor John Irwin, Project Rebound has grown from being a single campus program to one that is now offered at 14 different CSU campuses. As the current director of Project Rebound, Mr. Bell's dedication to the program has proven infectious.

Project Rebound is also launching the first-time certificate program in custody at the California Youth Authority in Stockton. A collaboration between SFSU’s College of Ethnic Studies, Project Rebound, College of Extended Learning, and the Department of Juvenile Justice, this undergraduate certificate program in Ethnic Studies consists of 4 courses or 12 units that will fulfill lower-division general education at any CSU. All online courses are taught by San Francisco State University faculty members and is set to launch in January 2021. Young people can take these courses while in custody. Transfer assistance is available for all youth who participate and desire to attend one of the Project Rebound supportive California State University campuses.
