New volunteers: Orientation this Sunday, Sept. 28

We love new volunteers, and to enhance the training experience we’ve introduced a dedicated orientation session. It takes place the last Sunday of each month, 1–2pm—right before our regular work session, 2–5pm. Get the details here.

Of course, if Sundays are inconvenient for you, but you’d still like to help us get books in the hands of women in prison, there are many ways to get involved.
