Currently, the CDCR is not allowing volunteers into the prisons due to COVID-19. We are still confirming which facilities will allow remote volunteering in the Fall of 2020. When we resume, we will teach our courses virtually (by Zoom). All courses noted below are subject to change depending on the virtual teaching capacity of the facility and COVID-19 restrictions. 
There will be a mandatory Orientation that will take place online on Sunday, January 24, 2021 2:00-5:00 p.m. Pacific Time USA. Attending this session will be a requirement to volunteer.
