ISKCON Prison Ministry needs volunteers to offer one-time or regular programs for the inmates. Inmates read Prabhupada's books and chant Hare Krsna, but they are craving face to face devotee association, as the following letter expresses:
“Our chaplain seems to be very helpful, and I’m sure he would be open to any volunteer devotees who wanted to be of assistance. A service or study could be held on a weekly or monthly basis. There is also an evening mentor meeting once a month where a volunteer can meet with an inmate in the chapel for 2 ½ hours; that would also be an option, it all depends on the availability of the devotee. I want to learn all I can about Krishna, and would be overjoyed to meet with a devotee face-to-face who would help guide me. I would be eternally grateful.”

If you would like to volunteer to give programs at this prison, or any other prison, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can connect you with devotees who do these programs and can give you very practical guidelines. Thank you!
