The Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC) is committed to a positive partnership between the agency and its volunteers. This partnership plays a vital role in achieving the department’s mission. Volunteer involvement enhances offender programs & services, plays an important part in reentry efforts, provides additional resources, and creates opportunities for a greater public understanding of corrections and the challenges we face.
Volunteers may perform in any area of agency operation where needs are identified, the volunteer is trained, certified or licensed to perform the duty, and the necessary accountability and resources are available. The department appreciates the tremendous contributions made our volunteers. The services provided by DOC volunteers include:
- Religious Services
- Faith-Based Programs
- Cognitive Behavioral Programs
- Substance Abuse Programs
- Family & Relationship Skill Building Programs
- Student Internships
- Administrative Assistance
Each month, thousands of volunteers serve at locations across the state in all types of places, such as:
- State operated & Private Prisons
- Community Corrections Centers
- Half-way Houses
- Work Centers
- Probation & Parole Offices
- Administrative Offices
- Reentry Programs & Services within the community
