All new volunteers for FTC must also attend one Online Volunteer Orientation prior to the workshop. The date information for this can be found in the Event Timeline section above.

CANCELLATIONS & NO-SHOW’S

Life happens and there are situations beyond our control. We understand and take these circumstances into consideration. With that in mind, if you have a history of dropping, you may be impacting your future chances of being selected as part of the volunteer team for the prison workshops.

VOLUNTEER AGREEMENT

By submitting your application, it means you can commit to being present for all the applicable attendance requirements above and for the entire weekend project.

Do I have to attend the Online Volunteer Orientation? Yes it is mandatory if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are brand new to FTC Programs
  • You are new to FTC workshops (monthly IAG groups are not workshops)
  • You have participated in a workshop but not as an FTC volunteer (New Alumni Volunteer, Retired Prison Staff, etc.)

EXPENSES & GUIDELINES

FOOD & LODGING EXPENSES

Lodging Expense – As a 501-c3 we rely on the generosity and goodwill of our volunteers to run these programs! As part of that, volunteers pay for their own hotel rooms (at a discounted rate).

Food – FTC provides lunch for all volunteers at our 2-day workshops and a continental breakfast is provided by the hotels.

We also encourage all volunteers to leave a tip for hotel staff (they’re truly amazing!).

COVID GUIDELINES

  • Currently California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation (CDCR) does not require masks.
  • You are encouraged to wear masks for your own health and well-being.
  • Flexibility. We are working closely with the prison to prepare for these events understanding that if COVID numbers surge, for the safety of our participants and volunteers, we will need to reschedule. Please know that the event may be cancelled on short notice.
