Correspondence volunteers can usually work from home and respond directly to people who are incarcerated, creating connections and hope for people behind bars.
It takes a lot of skill and organization to run a small nonprofit. If you have professional skills and want to volunteer, we have many ways to plug you into meaningful opportunities.

Creating your own program
As an organization, we value increased opportunities for people who are incarcerated. CWFA offers healing programming based on meditation, movement, and psychoeducation; however, we know that there is much more to living a rich, full life. If you have a skill or class idea that you’d like to bring to the prison – outside of the meditation, yoga, and psychoeducational programs we offer – we might be able to offer you support as a consultant.
We can put you in touch with the people in the Department of Correction who can approve your program ideas. We can discuss our experiences, successes and challenges of working within carceral systems. We cannot help you run a program outside of our defined perimeters.
