As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to facilitate classes on meditation, yoga, leadership, and various other activities. Your creativity is the limit, and your involvement will play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between incarceration and the community.

Your commitment to sharing your skills and passions can make a real difference in the lives of those working to rebuild their future. Together, we can create a supportive environment that fosters growth and positive change.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our volunteer team or have any questions, please reply to this post. Your willingness to contribute your time and expertise is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to help our clients transition back into the community successfully.
