Prison Journalism Project is a community of journalists, teachers, writers and change agents who care about criminal justice reform and believe in the power of word.

Due to an overwhelming volume of interest, our volunteer positions are currently at capacity. However, we hope to evolve and restructure our volunteer program so that we may expand opportunities for supporters to become more deeply involved with our work.

If you are interested in joining our community of future volunteers, please fill out this volunteer application form. If we can find a match between our needs and your experience and interests, we will be in touch.

Please note that you must be 18 or older to participate in our volunteer program.

If you are interested in partnering with us in a different way, visit our Collaborate With Us page.

We also welcome you become better acquainted with our stories and writers by subscribing to our weekly newsletter The Inside Story and amplifying our work on social media:
