Real Talk

Join in a current-events discussion with residents of a facility that provides interim housing and services for recently incarcerated men.The volunteer leader will pick the topic ahead of time, provide a handout with background on the subject, and lead the session. You and other volunteers will round out the conversation by sharing your own unique perspectives. This program helps residents build important communication skills and re-acclimate to society by talking with volunteers who have had different experiences than their own.
