New Jersey

New Jersey is home to 13 state prisons and 21 county jails. It's an exciting place to live, work, study…and as the Petey Greene Program reminds its volunteers, it's also an exciting place to volunteer. PG has a close working relationship with the New Jersey Department of Corrections and active student organizations at eight partner universities throughout the state. These community partnerships enable us to serve hundreds of incarcerated students each year; we help them obtain their high-school equivalency diplomas. Informal studies demonstrate our efforts are making a significant difference, and as our program grows, so does our impact.

This wiki is an effort to help our volunteers access the resources they need to provide excellent tutoring services wherever they end up! Here, you'll find a wealth of resources on tutoring strategies, volunteer dos and don'ts, DOC policies and procedures, directions to the facilities, and much more.

Please feel free to email Tara with suggestions, questions, or comments at gro.eneergyetep|adnort#gro.eneergyetep|adnort. We're especially interested in hearing about additional resources you think would be helpful here!
