    Schubert Coll is a former inmate who was part of the E3MC program while incarcerated at Rikers Island. After his release, Coll lived in a shelter in the Bronx, then worked as a dispatcher in Brooklyn and took two additional classes at Manhattan College. Now 51, married, and living and working in California, Coll credits the progress he’s made in his life to the E3MC program. “What I enjoyed most about it was they gave us the opportunity to succeed,” Coll explains. “That’s why that class was so impactful to me. It put the drive in me to be a better human being."
