Happy New Year 2019!
Last year, over 30 imprisoned women learned how to make decisions via support of 40 Volunteers. Yet, 115 women applied to take our education program.
We need your help to reach more students in 2019!
Since 1985, we've taught incarcerated women how to make better decisions!
As a volunteer-driven organization that, for more than 32 years, our organization has attracted women who seek personal and meaningful volunteer experiences. Better Decisions brings together women from varied backgrounds and gives them a unique opportunity to learn from each other. We've trained more than 1,200 volunteers who have taught and mentored over 1,500 women incarcerated in Nashville at the TN Prison for Women (TPW) and other area locations. Today, we are a growing and vibrant organization. Please join us in educating Nashville!
We would love to hear from you if you have an interest in volunteering with Better Decisions (see below). Volunteers must be at least 21 years old and have no criminal record. Once we receive your e-mail, we will follow up to conduct a telephone interview. Next steps would include completing a Tennessee Dept of Corrections application and attendance at both a TDOC policy & procedure training session and a Better Decisions curriculum and mentorship training event (15 hours total).
