Sojourners New Visitor Trainings


All prospective visitors must complete a 90-minute training, which covers basic terminology, detainees' needs and concerns, the role of the volunteer visitor, ground rules such as confidentiality, procedures for entering the detention center, "ten steps for a good visit" and FAQs. Once you've completed the training, you can decide whether you can commit to visit a detainee 1:1 at least twice a month for several months.
