(Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune) Cherish Wakefield looks through a window at the Wasatch County Jail as she waits in a hallway with other inmate students of the 12-week GOGI class (Getting Out by Going In), wait for the graduation ceremony to begin, Thursday, August 22, 2013.

Founder Mara Leigh Taylor calls GOGI — designed by prisoners for prisoners — a way of life that can help inmates finally take control of their lives and stop making bad decisions. At the Wasatch County Jail, some women are assigned to the GOGI tier, where they spend 12 weeks learning the GOGI way. Taylor was in Utah for the most recent class's graduation. See photo gallery.
