The Women's Justice Institute is seeking a volunteer to assist in our Women's Reentry Initiative. This volunteer would write emails to women leaving prison and returning to Cook County through a web-based platform to share information about available substance use treatment and reentry resources. In addition, they would ask questions about people's goals and gather information to share with our Client Care Coordinator. In addition, the volunteer may help create online wish lists to collect toiletries and clothing for women when they return home.

We anticipate this volunteer opportunity to take approximately 5-10 hours a week, depending on the volunteer's availability. It is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in working in social services in some way, such as social work or law/paralegal students. The ideal candidate is non-judgmental/believes in decarceration/abolition, is organized, and has a passion for helping people.
