New Volunteers: Orientation this Sunday, November 30

Concerned about prison issues and want to get involved? Intrigued by the chance to make a concrete, personal difference in the lives of prisoners?

Join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers—Sunday, November 30, 1–2pm, right before our regular 2–5pm work session. Get the details here.

If you can’t make it this week, plan now to join us for our next orientation. These monthly events usually take place the last Sunday of the month, but to better accommodate holiday travel and such, our next orientation will be Sunday, January 4. This might even tie in nicely to a New Year’s resolution or two. Volunteer? Meet new people? Save the world (or at least one small part of it)?

If you’re not often available on Sunday, check out other ways to get involved and help give women in prison the self-empowerment, education and entertainment that reading provides.
