By keeping men engaged, stimulated and motivated, our volunteers ensure the prison environment is safer (both for other prisoners & all staff/volunteers/providers), they provide community connections and act as role models. It is also incredibly valuable for our volunteers to be a part of the good news stories that come out of the work they do & by including our communities in volunteering, we hope to increase the sense of inclusion that tane experience when they are released which in turn benefits our communities through a reduction in recidivism.
