NASHVILLE - On Thursday, June 20, 2019, the Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) will celebrate the Grand Opening of the Braille Transcription Program at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.  This new program is the result of a partnership between TRICOR and the Tennessee School for the Blind.
 
The Braille Transcription Program allows offenders the opportunity to work, learn Braille and utilize tools to transcribe printed educational material into braille for students at the Tennessee School for the Blind.  By learning to transcribe Braille, these offenders will not only be productive while serving their sentence but will also learn an employable skill that will assist them in successful reentry.
