Here you'll find our teaching application for the spring of 2014.
Note: Because of Department of Corrections/Iowa Juvenile Home regulations, students under the age of 18 are not eligible to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering and you are under 18 but will be turning 18 during the semester, you can still fill out an application and we will try to work you in during the semester.
- Before you begin your teaching application, read our Resources and Guidelines for Teachers.
- You must go through an orientation at the prison where you want to volunteer. The next orientation for the Newton Correctional Facility will be Tuesday, November 26th (you will be leaving campus at 5 and returning by 9:30). To attend this orientation, you must fill out the appropriate Background Check Form--due to Emily's office in Windsor House at 1026 Park St at NOON on Monday, November 18th.
