The PCAP Linkage Project affirms the creativity of adults and youth returning home from incarceration. Volunteers are needed for three Linkage Project opportunities. Contact Vanessa Mayesky for more information or to sign up.
Visual Art Workshop Facilitator
We are seeking a volunteer facilitator (or facilitation team) for a monthly visual arts workshop at Washtenaw Prisoner Reentry. The workshop provides a positive social activity for returning citizens and an opportunity to explore the visual arts in a supportive environment. Workshops began in June 2012 and are held the second Tuesday of each month from 4:00-5:30 pm at Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County. Art supplies and snacks are provided by PCAP Linkage Project.
Linkage Fellows Mentor
Linkage Fellows mentors provide a caring, supportive, artistic mentoring relationship with a returning citizen in the PCAP Linkage Project. Mentors work with fellows over a 12-month period to set and meet artistic goals and receive a $500 stipend. The next fellow-mentor pairs will be matched in March 2013. See the mentor position description for more details.
Long-Distance Writing Coach
Coaches provide writing advice and feedback through a four-month correspondence relationship with a protégé. Writing coach pairs are matched throughout the year. See the program description for details.
