I think that is a wonderful idea!
Allowing people to make amends for their wrongs. Obviously that is the whole idea behind the corrections system (or at least use to be)
to show people where they went wrong and to get them to be a part of society again. A much better approach for all rather than tarnishing them for life, leaving them little no hope. I hope this program is a great success and it carries over to the adults as well.
