We would welcome new facilitators in order to extend this program to other facilities in the state. The work is intense, heartening, exhausting, and immensely rewarding.
There are few places anywhere where one could find a group of such highly motivated participants; or few places where one is reminded so urgently and movingly of one's common humanity.
To become a volunteer you first need to complete a security training at Maine Correctional Center in Windham. Contact Noreen Hopkins via email at Maine Correctional Center in Windham to find out when the next security training is.
Next please can contact the AVP Maine coordinator by entering your contact information below. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.
To become a facilitator you will begin by being a participant in each of the three levels of AVP training. You will start with an AVP Basic weekend, followed by an AVP Advanced weekend and finally an AVP Training for Trainers.
After completing all three levels you will enter your apprentice stage where you will co-facilitate with experienced facilitators until both you and the other facilitators are completely comfortable.
