AVP SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY is looking for volunteers to go into local prisons to participate in conflict resolution workshops. We have AVP in CCWF Chowchilla Womens prison, SATF Corcoran Sub Abuse Treatment Facility and CSP-COR Corcoran State Prison. There is a short clearance form and if you are formerly incarcerated there may be an opportunity for you to attend as well. The waiting list for these workshops inside are sometimes years long. It is a much needed, much sought after program. We are in desperate need of volunteers willing to go inside. If you are at all interested or would like to sit down and have some coffe (on me) please contact me! AVP is throughout the state in 22 prisons. The call for volunteers is not just in Fresno. Any and all interested people are encouraged to contact me!! The classes are very rewarding and will give you the opportunity to see that life, hope, love and faith all continue beyond those walls. Please contact Irene at 559-942-0708 via phone or text or email at to get more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
