Volunteers: The Generation of Inspiration
31 May, 2012
The transition from prison life to life in the community is a difficult one and offenders benefit from the support they receive from Communitas volunteers. Community support is one of the primary factors for ex-offenders successfully reintegrating and maintaining a crime-free lifestyle.
Students, professionals and retirees from all across Canada and beyond give Communitas a marvelous diversity of volunteers that represents true community. Volunteers aged 20 to 80 involve themselves in activities including reintegration, social activities, prison visits, accompanying offenders on escorted outings for prisoners, mentoring and accompaniment including Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA).
