The New Hampshire Department of Corrections has hundreds of volunteers working to deliver programs and provide valuable services and skills to residents and staff. While acting as models of leadership and citizenry, volunteers provide hundreds of hours of service each year at no cost. Without these volunteers, the system could not provide the services needed for ultimate success. Volunteer involvement is highly valued by NHDOC and the Department is actively working to increase the presence of volunteers in DOC programs and services.

By bringing a variety of skills and modeling successful leadership and citizenship, volunteers help residents become more productive, educated, self-sufficient, and law-abiding members of communities. Volunteers are key players in a system designed for the development, improvement, and readiness of residents to ensure they have a smooth transition back into the community. Volunteers are also role models for the journey and provide much-needed support to NHDOC staff and facilities who have limited resources. It is an opportunity that provides an important public service and is also personally rewarding. The New Hampshire Department of Corrections couldn’t do without all the help from all of the volunteers!
