How do I become a Volunteer?
The Department of Corrections is transitioning to a new volunteer software system that will enable us to better support our volunteers, from the application process to communication to connecting volunteers with opportunities to serve anywhere within the agency.
As part of the transition process we are presently unable to accept new volunteer applications while we are registering current volunteers into the system. As soon as that process is complete a link will be placed on this webpage that will help you search for volunteer opportunities and apply online.
If you are a current volunteer you will be receiving a letter with instructions on how to register in the new system.
