We Need Your Talent
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman

Inside Prison Volunteers
We offer weekly and monthly programs inside various institutions across Washington State. For folks who are drawn to this unique and powerful volunteer work, the rewards are huge. We train people who want to volunteer inside the prisons in anti-oppression, racial equity, compassionate communication and mindfulness.
Being an Inside Volunteer takes time to coordinate with the Department of Corrections, so this is a longer onboarding process. Plus, this kind of volunteering isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay. It is important that volunteers examine their “why” – we are not here to fix or rescue people, but to learn and grown in community.
Reentry Allies walk shoulder to shoulder with folks as they come home from prison. Reentry volunteers help out in a variety of ways: giving people rides to appointments, helping them adjust to the changes in technology and transportation, or helping gather essentials like clothing and toiletries.
Becoming a Reentry Volunteer takes less time than an Inside Prison Volunteer.
We invite you to be in community with us. Your passions are welcome here – what do you love to contribute? For example…
Join us for Work Party Wednesdays, from 1-7 pm to help out in the office or get connected to other volunteer projects. You can show up and contribute any time! We always needs help with basic office work, social media, online newsletter, transcribing feedback forms, for example
