Hudson River Center Staff


John London
Executive Director

As a lifelong educator with experience as a program director, administrator, and private sector consultant, John London brings expertise in program development and design to Hudson River Center. He is, perhaps, most well-known for his accomplishments with the development of the New York State Incarcerated Transition Program. In the year 2000, the United States Department of Education (USDOE) nominated it for the Secretary's Award for Outstanding Programs.

John also has an extensive background in adult education, serving as director of Adult Education and Literacy Services at a local community college, and later, for a large diverse city school district. He has an instructional background at the middle school level, as well as in the adult education classroom. He has co-developed and presented workshops on family literacy services and learning disabilities strategies for both adult and alternative education programming.

Upon leaving the New York State Education Department, John was hired as a consultant to Bridges.com (an educational design company) to oversee the development and marketing of a customized and outcome-based, multi-systems service model called BRIDGES-TO-THE-COMMUNITY. The USDOE also contracted him to conduct a national feasibility study on family literacy needs and applications in correctional settings.

Over the years, John's work and contributions to adult education have received a number of awards and recognitions from both state and Federal levels. The Federal Office of Job Corps, Region 1, recognized the New York Incarcerated Transition Program as an exemplary Re-entry Model. He received recognition for his work with Day Reporting Centers from the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.

John has presented workshops nationally, statewide, and locally, and has provided technical assistance, customized training, and support to various agencies, as well as private organizations. While serving as Director of the New York State Incarcerated Education Program, John oversaw the development of the Statewide Evaluation Study on Recidivism (one of the first of its kind) and post-release outcomes from 1996 to 1999.

John's dedication, knowledge, and enthusiasm are traits familiar to those who have worked with him. His well-known background as an educator, program strategist, and proponent for the delivery of quality services define his professional life.
