How can you help?

PEP volunteers help by investing their time and sharing their personal experiences and knowledge. Volunteers expose in-custody students to substantive content that allows them to transform their lives. Each volunteer commits to one 60 or 90-minute session per week for seven weeks. Volunteers give presentations in groups in modules such as:  

Academic Orientation, Life Skills, Enrichment.
