About this Opportunity
The Rikers Island Academy program is a 12-week intensive program inside Rikers Island. A cohort of 20+ men live together and attend daily classes that address relationships, criminogenic needs, substance abuse and addictions, and spiritual formation. Volunteer instructors teach weekly classes (Mon-Fri, various times) on a number of topics to engage with men who are focusing on building a new life and becoming productive citizens. Volunteers must complete Prison Fellowship's online application in order to serve. Once the application is approved, the Prison Fellowship staff will contact volunteers for next steps, including an interview and training. Please note, the dates and times of upcoming opportunities below are only to record when you request an application, and are not volunteering opportunities.
