What is Criminon?

Criminon – meaning without crime – is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to criminal rehabilitation and reform. Criminon accomplishes its work through services that improve self-respect, relationship skills and break destructive habits. Criminon provides basic life skills to people on probation, inmates and ex-offenders, enabling them to become ethical and productive members of their communities and lead better lives.

Criminon provides education and rehabilitation programs for inmates and ex-offenders, helping them to restore their own self-respect.  Criminon utilizes the highly effective secular works of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard to help inmates gain a new level of ability to study, to comprehend and to restore their integrity and pride.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Criminon has been delivering rehabilitative education services to inmates since 1989. In any given week, Criminon provides services to over 8,400 students internationally. A majority of these students participate in Criminon’s services through self-study programs. Criminon is currently working with inmates in over 2,500 prisons across the planet, in countries such as the United States, South Africa, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Indonesia, Hungary, Canada, Colombia, Venezuela, and the United Kingdom.

>> Our Mission Statement

"Until recently, I have lived my life and based my decisions on one principle, ’If it feels good and it seems right, then do it.’ This principle is not a good way for one to be successful or ensure one’s survival!

"I have discovered a great deal about myself and how to live. I have cried and laughed to myself while doing this course. With the encouragement and genuine care and concern of my supervisor, Kathie, I have found The Way to Happiness Correspondence Course to be the primary source of my new found self-respect, dignity and hope."
