If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up. --Booker T. Washington

What if I have a record of a criminal offense?  Having a record for criminal offense does not prevent a person from becoming a volunteer.

What if I am related to an offender? If you are related to someone currently under supervision either at a facility or probation and parole office, you will be required to agree to and sign a conflict of interest agreement that specifies how you may volunteer and avoid a conflict of interest.

Can I volunteer if I am currently on probation? A person who is under supervision is not allowed to volunteer until they have been off supervision for one year.  A person may request consideration for waiving the one-year waiting period, which is looked at on a case-specific basis.

Is there a minimum time commitment? There is generally no minimum time commitment for volunteers.  However, there may be a minimum time commitment for certain volunteer jobs.
