Mentor Program at Women’s Federal Correctional Inst. (FCI)

This program aims to help inmates with a plan of action prior to release for successfully reintegrating back into the community. Women volunteers will initially meet with the FCI Mentor Coordinator, pass a background clearance, and receive training  (usually held in the evening). Mentors will meet with the inmate once a week or every other week for 6 to 9 months. Inmates (who all have two years or less left on their sentence) will participate in a Threshold class that focuses on spirituality and smart goals. Class size is usually around 10 to 12 inmates. A team of mentors is needed as well as volunteers to possibly teach a Threshold class.
