Volunteer

Interested in Volunteering?

​Volunteers play a vital role in our mission. Working with volunteers gives inmates the opportunity to interact, broaden their worldview, learn, and be connected to the outside world. Many inmates assert that contact with volunteers is the most valuable part of their time in jail.
  • In the AIR block, a number of volunteers run groups with the inmates six days a week.
  • In the multipurpose room of the jail, volunteers run a number of enrichment classes and help with the Transitions program. New volunteers are welcome to join existing groups or start new groups. 
  • ​​At our transition office, volunteers help with administrative tasks and client assistance. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to interact with ex-offenders and contribute to their success. 
​If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, email us at newleaf1010@gmail.com or call (812) 355-6842.
 

Re-Entry Collective Opportunity

​​The Re-entry Collective supports individuals in direct advocacy and continuation of programming after their release. Volunteers are welcome to contact New Leaf - New Life about attending an orientation and participating in this group. This group hopes to primarily attract formerly incarcerated community members. 

Ad Hoc Opportunities

We often have one-time opportunities for volunteering, such as helping with our 5K or with MLK Day activities.  To see what's happening and where we need your help, check out our News and Events page!
