Volunteer

Volunteers are the lifeblood of an organization. Thresholds volunteers bring community involvement to the prison by helping inmates learn to make decisions in their lives, resolving issues in a constructive manner.

Volunteers are trained in the program designed by Mickey Burglass  They are supported by veteran volunteers in their teaching sessions with the inmate. Training is done on a weekend workshop.
