SERVE

Prison Mentorship Program

Our M2/W2 community volunteers are dedicated to establishing supportive community relationships with the incarcerated in our provincial and federal institutions. Our mentorship program is based on a trusting relationship where an inmate is allowed space to share and process his/her past, present and future. We endeavour to come alongside in a positive caring manner to bolster a positive and productive healthy lifestyle.
