Get involved with this opportunity to minister to our incarcerated siblings! The Freedom to Choose Project (FTC) is all about redemption and the power of second chances. We assist men and women in stepping free of past identifications as “criminals” and re-identifying themselves as valuable members of our society.
There are two ways to participate -
volunteering for in-person programs and
being a volunteer reader for the FTC Self-Directed Learning Program.
Here are a few responses from participants in these Self-Directed Learning Program:
“Thank you for the continued education & support. I take you all with me, every day and in every session…” (Derek, currently in San Quentin)
“I am humble grateful to take on this Challenge to better myself and the Community. I am a solution, no longer the problem.” (Adrian, currently in Ironwood State Prison)
“I enjoyed the blessings challenge because when you take time to notice the good things you don’t have the space to dwell in the negative.” (Jamie, currently at Central California Women’s Facility)
Alex, who is currently incarcerated at Valley State Prison, shared his story in this powerful video.
As of November 2022, in-person programs have restarted. Visit Freedom to Choose Project to donate, volunteer, engage in current events or to learn more.
