Volunteers play a critical role in successful reentry. Volunteers are mentors, teachers, coaches and artists facilitating services at all of our prisons statewide. Dedicated volunteers are essential to the success of reentry services and are integrated into every phase of the rehabilitative process. From music to art to faith-based spiritual guidance, our volunteers are key to success.
