In a societal context where criminal bias and a cycle of prisoner re-offense is present, the ex-offender Volkert Ruhe helps juvenile delinquents independently decide against a criminal career by engaging them in honest dialogue with current and ex-prisoners. The exchange is mutually transformative, leading to better opportunities for social integration in both populations. Through the program’s design, ex-prisoners themselves become the driving force in changing both their own social reputation and criminal patterns among young people in Germany.
