Training was very informative & will greatly help me in my work as a volunteer. An eye opener to what life is in prison! Participant (Volunteer) in Basic Prison Training

It was very interesting. The trainer was able to get me to focus and the pop quiz was very useful in reinforcing the learning. The role plays helped give insight into the issues inmates have.Participant in Basic Prison Training
