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

You talents and passions are vital to our work – whether you want to work inside the prisons, supporting folks in reentry, volunteer in the office, or lend your skills to the movement – in the way that only you can.

Fill out the “Share Your Passions” form and we will connect with you.

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 Volunteers

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.

Community Volunteers

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

Are you a graphic designer? We always welcome talent with brochures, flyers or our annual reports.

You can also participate in our organizational racial equity work by joining the Racial Equity Social Justice circle.

What else do you think we should be doing? These are just our ideas and some of the best ideas might be YOURS!

How We See People: Anti-Oppression / Mass Incarceration Workshop

December 5 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

How do we see people? What’s the impact on others? What lenses do we see through and where do these lenses come from? How are *we* seen? Whether we are overvalued or undervalued by society, the ways that we are seen are influenced by multiple systems, histories, experiences and institutions. This workshop seeks to explain the systems and institutions that shape the ways we see ourselves and others so that we can be more accountable for the impacts: internalized racial…
