How will this volunteer opportunity benefit you?
Our trained and screened volunteers are (extra)ordinary people! Volunteering with CoSA is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience while working with a person who has been through the criminal justice system and is attempting to reintegrate in the community. Volunteers will garner knowledge of the criminal justice system, social services and the challenges involved in reintegration, in particular, relating to our target clientele. Experienced staff, members of CoSA’s Board of Directors and Advisory Group and associated professionals offer on-going support to volunteers. We don't do this alone!
