Our volunteers are extraordinary! We are fortunate to have the support of a large and dedicated group, many of whom have continually stepped forward in loving service since the project began. Volunteering with The Freedom to Choose Project (FTC) is an enriching experience, which provides each volunteer with opportunities to be of service in addition to mastering the same skills we offer our participants. These skills support greater healing, effective communication, emotional intelligence, self-determination, and a higher degree of happiness. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, here’s how you can get started.
Volunteer locally with The Freedom to Choose Project at our In-Prison Monthly Groups, also known as Individuals Achieving Greatness (IAG). These groups, hosted at five different California prison locations, extend the impactful work conducted in our larger workshops. Rooted in Compassionate Experiential Education, these monthly sessions provide crucial support for incarcerated participants to continue practicing and growing on their transformative journeys. Join us in fostering a community of love, freedom, and empowerment—one cohort at a time.
Join us and a volunteer from anywhere in the world via Zoom! Together, we’ll read homework assignments from incarcerated participants in our correspondence program and offer supportive, meaningful feedback. The entire process takes place online, and no prior experience is necessary. For more information or to explore FTC Reader testimonials, click the ‘Learn More’ button below to get started.
