We are so grateful for our volunteers.  Without volunteers who are surrendered to serving Christ, we could never accomplish our mission.  We seek to deploy our volunteers in their strength and comfort zones. God blesses every one of His children with gifts, and if He calls you to serve with us, we will help you use it for His glory.

Volunteers get involved with JUMPSTART typically in one of two ways:

Inside Volunteers: You will be a part of a team that enters the prison regularly to encourage participants, be a consistent presence with our inside peer leaders/mentors, and help facilitate the discipleship classes.

Outside Volunteers: Mentors who come alongside those who have been released from prison and help them reintegrate into society. Other outside mentors use their gifts and experience in a variety of ways to help with volunteer recruitment, fundraising, prayer teams, and just about anything else you can think of to accomplish the mission.


“I found God and myself through JUMPSTART! I was so lost and broken when I first started attending but, as long as I just showed up, I had an amazing group of people to talk with about God and the many problems I faced (and still face today). They helped me discover who I am, my self-worth, and my purpose in life.”

Amber (Inside Program Participant)

The bible teaches us that “the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective”. As a prayer partner, you’ll have the opportunity to pray for the many men and women we serve in prisons every day…and those from JumpStart that serve them.

Please join us in praying with Amber and other JUMPSTART participants, that we may all have our lives transformed.
