Currently we are seeking a tech savvy volunteer to assist with our IT needs.
The ideal volunteer will be able to help set up our printer, back up our files and start moving them to the cloud, offer suggestions and guidance on how to better improve or streamline our systems, troubleshoot issues with our hardware (Windows computers and printer), setup the equipment in our new office when CPF relocates in September and offer on-going support moving forward. An extra bonus would be any assistance that can be offered with troubleshooting software issues with Exceed! Basic and Word, but this is not necessary. The time commitment per week for this role should not exceed 5-10 hours and can be flexible. We would love to find someone who can stay for at least 6 months.
If you are interested and able to help, please check out our website at prisons.org and reply to this post with a brief description of your experience and availability. Thank you very much! - CPF

We have been conducting prisoner interviews in California’s SHU facilities since 1991, logging more than 1,000 interviews across 50 visits. Our finding are published in our newspaper and other publications.
