Volunteer and Mentor Services

Volunteers - whether coming into IDOC facilities or as Free2Succeed mentors in Idaho's communities - bring together people who are committed to achieving a shared outcome of making their community a better place for all. Volunteers provide an effective way of connecting and engaging individuals they work with to vital resources, both tangible and intangible, throughout the Department and the state of Idaho.

Volunteers are an integral part of the IDOC mission of keeping; the public safe and providing opportunities for residents to change. Volunteers work within the prisons to provide religious classes, specialized training, and unique teaching opportunities.

Free2Succeed Mentor Program

Free2Succeed mentors come from all walks of life, all ages, and from a variety of economic, social, and educational backgrounds. Mentors will help provide a "bridge" for residents who are returning to Idaho's communities from incarceration. The goal of Free2Succeed is to provide residents who are willing to participate in the program with a mentor who will work with them side-by-side to ensure a smooth and successful transition and help reduce the chance of recidivism.
