The Prison University Project uses a student-centered, culturally-responsive model of teaching. Volunteer faculty are placed as instructors and tutors during our spring, summer, and fall terms and commit to 5-10 hours per week to their class for the duration of the semester. All volunteers should be comfortable with extensive communication with co-instructors and staff and should be open to exploring new teaching techniques.
We highly encourage applications from all qualified individuals including women, people of color, persons with disabilities, ethnic and religious minorities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender variant individuals.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
We have an ongoing need for volunteers to support our fundraising and office management team. Ideally, volunteers are able to commit to a regular schedule, but one-time or intermittent assistance can also be very helpful. If you're interested, please contact Mary Donovan.
